Teledyne Electronic Manufacturing Services will invest $9.78 million to expand its Lewisburg, Tennessee, manufacturing facility, with plans to hire 96 employees to accommodate a new product line.
Teledyne EMS designs, manufactures and services products for the aerospace, computer, government, industrial, medical and telecommunications markets. The Teledyne facility in the Lewisburg Industrial Park currently houses 170,000 square feet of temperature- and humidity-controlled space, and may be expanded by an additional 25,000 square feet if needed. It supplies electronics to the defense and aerospace industries and was recently awarded the opportunity to manufacture a high-tech micro-electronics line.
“The exciting part about it is that it contains a whole range of new technologies that we don’t currently perform here,” Shane Green, vice president and general manager of Teledyne EMS of Lewisburg, said. “This will allow us to provide a broader range of products and services to the customer base. We feel like this is going to be a strong competitive position for us and enable growth of the business over time. To our knowledge, we will be unique in the area with hybrid manufacturing, chip and wire technology, and chip integration technology.”
“Congratulations to Teledyne on the addition of a new product line to their already successful operations in Lewisburg,” said Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty. “The jobs that advanced manufacturers like Teledyne provide are good, quality positions for Tennesseans and have been a focus of our recruitment strategy. I appreciate the company’s confidence in our workforce.”
“We wanted to show that it made good business sense to relocate the product line in Lewisburg and that Lewisburg and the entire Middle Tennessee region provide a great location for some of its highly-skilled workforce to relocate as well,” said Greg Lowe, Lewisburg Director of Economic Development. Information on hiring incentives for which the firm might be eligible was not immediately available.
