Techni-Glass Expands Surgoinsville, Tennessee, Manufacturing Center

Techni-Glass, Inc., a custom glass manufacturer will invest $1.5 million to expand its operations center in Surgoinsville, Tennessee. The company plans to create 54 new jobs in Hawkins County.

The company plans to renovate its current facility in Hawkins County. With this expansion, the company will add 15,000 square feet to its existing operations to make room for new equipment.

Techni-Glass manufactures double edging, CNC cutting, CNC milling, roll coating, tempering and laminating glass products. The company’s highly trained staff applies glass fabrication capabilities in a variety of ways and serves many industries including sports and recreation, food services and home kitchens.

“Techni-Glass opened in 1997 with only five employees doing only glass screen printing in a 15,000-square foot facility. I am thrilled Techni-Glass has grown so much in its 20 years in Hawkins County and is in its fifth expansion,” Techni-Glass President & CEO Pat Murphy said. “I am extremely thankful for the exceptional cooperation and support from the State of Tennessee and the individuals from NETWORKS Sullivan Partnership and the Hawkins County Industrial Development Board who assisted Techni-Glass in its expansion.”

Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said, “This is the third announcement we have had in Hawkins County since May, and it is great news that Techni-Glass is helping us continue this momentum in Hawkins County and the state of Tennessee by expanding here.”
