Martin Technologies Locates Operations Complex in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee

12/19/2017
Martin Technologies, an engineering and manufacturing company, will invest more than $6 million to establish a production and operations center in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.

The company expects to create approximately 240 jobs in Lawrence County. Martin Technologies will initially occupy 60,000-square-feet at 100 Hicks Drive in Lawrenceburg. The company plans to have the new facility operational in January. The Lawrenceburg operations will initially support engineering and testing services for automotive OEMs before providing additional manufacturing services for OEMs and suppliers.

Headquartered in New Hudson, Michigan, Martin Technologies is a full-service engineering and manufacturing company, providing global mobility solutions to the automotive, marine, aerospace and defense industries.

“This move represents an exciting growth segment for Martin Technologies,” Harold Martin, CEO & Founder of Martin Technologies, said. “We have steadily grown our team for more than 21 years. We are founded on a motorsports culture of fast reaction, precision, efficiency and innovation. We are blessed by the welcome and accommodation of Lawrence County.”

“ This location is key to our engineering expansion as we are rapidly expanding our global footprint. We have plans to hire approximately 240 people to accommodate our growing customer base in the local market, bringing additional economic growth to Lawrence County,” he added.

According to state officials, Martin Technologies’ decision to establish a new facility in Lawrenceburg is driven by increased demand among automotive OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers for its engineering, testing and manufacturing services.

“I’d like to thank Martin Technologies for its commitment to invest in Lawrence County,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “The creation of approximately 240 new jobs in high-skilled engineering, management and technician positions will be a tremendous boost for household incomes in Lawrence County. Martin Technologies’ decision to establish operations in Lawrenceburg brings us one step closer to making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“From a jobs standpoint, Martin Technologies’ plan to locate a facility in Lawrenceburg represents the largest project TNECD has supported in Lawrence County since 2011,” Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “TNECD has made job growth in rural Tennessee a priority, and it’s encouraging news that Martin Technologies will move forward and create hundreds of new job opportunities for the residents of Lawrence County.”

“Martin Technologies’ investment in Lawrence County further validates our proven automotive workforce. We welcome them to the Lawrence County family,” Ethan Hadley, President & CEO of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, said.
