Jones Plastic and Engineering Expands Camden Tennessee, Manufacturing Plant

01/03/2017
Jones Plastic and Engineering, one of the world’s leading plastic injection molders, will expand its manufacturing center in Camden, Tennessee. The company will invest $4.5 million and create 52 new jobs in Benton County.

This is Jones Plastic’s second expansion in four years in Camden. The company will expand its current facility in Benton County to accommodate growing demand and to make room for new equipment. Its primary markets are appliances, outdoor products, medical supplies, electronics and automotive.

“Jones Plastic and Engineering is excited to be part of the Benton County community,” Jones Plastic and Engineering Plant Manager Eric Hicks said. “This is the second expansion Jones Plastic and Engineering has made in a four-year period. Jones Plastic looks forward to creating jobs and continually growing in Benton County. The last 20 years have been exceptional and the company intends on helping this community in future endeavors. We would like to thank Benton County and the State of Tennessee for their continual support.”

“I want to thank Jones Plastic for choosing to expand in Camden and for creating over 50 new jobs,” Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “The manufacturing sector is on the rise in Tennessee with over 45,400 new manufacturing jobs since 2010, and it means a great deal that Jones Plastic will continue to add new jobs to this sector. Thank you, Jones Plastic, for continuing to be a valued member of Team Tennessee.”

“Benton County is fortunate to have an industrial facility such as Jones Plastic. This is its second expansion in the last four years, creating job opportunities for Benton County citizens,” Benton County Mayor Barry Barnett said. “The jobs created by this expansion will help boost our economy and expand our tax base. Thanks to TNECD and Jones Plastics for providing the opportunity to make this a reality for Benton County.”

TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said, “It’s always an exciting day when an existing company is committed to continuing growth in our rural communities, and we are pleased to partner with Benton County Camden Chamber of Commerce, local officials, and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to celebrate this announcement.”
