“NFI continues to grow rapidly and we are excited to bring this new location to the Nashville area,” said NFI President and Vice Chairman Jeff Brown. “The Smyrna operation is a great example of NFI’s ability to leverage its commercial real estate expertise and network to secure a location with its distribution operations to manage the facility and deliver a comprehensive solution for our customer.”

New Jersey-based NFI provides end-to-end supply chain solutions across the United States and Canada. The new Smyrna location will serve as a distribution and fulfillment center for customers throughout the Southeast region. In addition to distribution, NFI offers solutions in commercial real estate, dedicated transportation, brokerage, transportation management, intermodal and global logistics across a wide range of industries including retail, consumer packaged goods, and food and beverage.

“I’d like to thank NFI for investing in Rutherford County and creating approximately 170 new jobs in Middle Tennessee,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “Tennessee’s central location and deep pool of skilled workers make our state the ideal home for companies like NFI to operate major distribution facilities. This new operation in Smyrna brings us one step closer to making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“NFI already has an existing presence with two other locations in the Nashville area,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “I’m pleased to see NFI move forward with plans to grow in Tennessee and look forward to the positive impact the creation of approximately 170 new jobs will have on Smyrna and surrounding communities.”
