Global Track Manufacturing USA, Inc. has established a production facility in the former Tower Automotive plant in Milan, TN. The company will create 250 jobs at the new plant in Gibson County, its first in the U.S.
“The Milan facility is Global Track’s first U.S. manufacturing plant, and I want to thank Mayor BW Beasley and his economic development staff for their hard work over the past two years,” said Barry Min, President and Owner of Global Track Manufacturing. “Mayor Beasley and his team have worked tirelessly to help Global Track get our building operational, act as an advocate for us in Washington, DC regarding tariff issues, establish U.S. banking relationships, and have been supportive in every aspect. I am confident we made the right decision to locate in Milan, and I look forward to growing our U.S. customer base and creating jobs for the citizens of Milan and Gibson County.”
Global Track manufactures rubber tracks and undercarriage for industrial and agricultural equipment. The company currently operates a manufacturing facility in China. The Milan facility will be Global Track’s second plant, and the company anticipates production will begin there in the summer of 2020.
“Global Track’s decision to invest in Milan is a resounding vote of confidence in Tennessee and our workforce,” said Gov. Bill Lee. “More and more global companies are finding out that Tennessee is the perfect place to do business, and I look forward to the creation of 250 quality jobs in Milan and Gibson County.”
Since 2015, Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD) has supported 10 economic development projects in Gibson County, resulting in more than 2,500 job commitments and more than $415 million in capital investment.
“I am pleased to see Global Track invest in Tennessee,” said TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “Li Weaver, TNECD’s representative in China, and our international team played an instrumental role in landing this project. Tennessee’s skilled workforce creates world-renowned products, and this substantial investment promises to inject hundreds of terrific, family wage jobs in Gibson County and Milan.”
“I am excited to formally announce this project as the City of Milan has been working with Barry Min and Global Track over the last two years since the company purchased the former Tower Automotive facility,” said Milan Mayor BW Beasley. “Global Track has been manufacturing rubber tracks out of its China facility for many years with a great amount of success, and I look forward to the Milan facility achieving even greater success as the company grows the Global Track manufacturing footprint. This is a very exciting day for Milan and Gibson County, and I am grateful to Barry Min and Global Track for choosing Milan for the company’s U.S. manufacturing location.”
