Coil Design Corporation will invest $3.4 million to establish its corporate headquarters and a manufacturing plant in Dayton, TN. The heating and cooling coil manufacturer plans to create nearly 70 jobs over the next two years.
“Coil Design Corporation will be the supplier of choice for coils in the heating, cooling, refrigeration and aftermarket industries,” said Coil Design Corporation CEO Paul Guariglia. “We have a skilled staff of employees that manufactured coils at this very site for 21 years under its previous ownership. The presence of an existing, highly trained labor force will allow us to grow at an accelerated pace while maintaining the highest level of quality. Tennessee is a great place to operate a business and Dayton is a location that met all of our needs. We are grateful for the support we have received from the city, county and state.”
Coil Design Corporation will occupy the former Goodman Manufacturing plant. The company will invest in new equipment and facility upgrades, and the plant to is expected to be operational in the second quarter of 2018. Workers at the Rhea County facility will manufacture and design cooling and heating coils for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the HVAC and refrigeration industries as well as the aftermarket. Coil Design Corporation intends to hire machine operators, copper flame brazing technicians, assembly workers, drafters, engineers and sales personnel.
“For decades, Dayton has had a rich manufacturing legacy, especially in skilled trades that supply the HVAC industry,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “By establishing its headquarters and production in Dayton, Coil Design Corporation will play a crucial role in boosting the local economy and providing jobs for the citizens of Rhea County. I’d like to thank Coil Design Corporation’s leadership for the confidence it has in the skilled workforce of Rhea County and look forward to its future impact on the community.”
“We’re proud to have Coil Design Corporation choose Dayton for its new manufacturing and headquarters operation,” said Dayton Mayor Gary Louallen. “When so many companies take manufacturing offshore, it’s great to see a company investing in the U.S. and creating well-paying jobs right here in our community.”
“When we first began talking with Coil Design Corporation about choosing Dayton, it was all about the availability of skilled labor,” said Dennis Tumlin, executive director of Rhea Economic and Community Development. “Being located here in the Greater Chattanooga metro, we’re able to draw labor from 16 counties to meet their current and future needs.”
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) also supported Coil Design Corporation’s new operations in Dayton.
