Worthington Industries Plans $14.25 Million Expansion In Greeneville, Tennessee

06/02/2015
A market leader in the design and manufacturing of high quality custom-engineered operator cabs for industrial mobile equipment, Worthington Industries will invest $14.25 million to expand its current operations at Hardin Industrial Park in Greeneville, Tennessee. Through this expansion, the company will add four new product lines and create 140 new jobs in Greene County.

“We are pleased to expand the facility and add to the workforce in Greeneville,” Worthington Industries Engineered Cabs President John Lamprinakos said. “We appreciate the support of Greene County, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the state of Tennessee as we develop this facility into a fully integrated LEAN manufacturing operation focused on safety, quality and delivery.”

Worthington’s Greeneville facility was established in 1999 as Angus-Palm Industries and was acquired by Worthington Industries in 2012. The facility currently has 315 employees and will hire new workers in all areas of operations including fabrication, welding, painting and assembly.

“Worthington Industries’ expansion in Greene County is the perfect example of what happens when we achieve workforce alignment,” Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “Programs at the Greene Technology Center and Walters State Community College are training workers to develop the right kind of skills to fit into today’s advanced manufacturing careers and that in turn allows companies like Worthington Industries to quickly fill open positions and continue expanding. I’m excited about their growth and these partnerships between industry and education.”

“We’re extremely pleased that Worthington chose the Greeneville facility for its expansion,” Greene County Partnership President Tom Ferguson said. “The more than 140 jobs will assist in lowering the county’s seven percent unemployment rate and will also boost Greeneville’s economy.”

Tennessee Valley Authority and Greeneville Light & Power System congratulate Worthington Industries on its plans to expand and add 140 new jobs in Greeneville,” TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said. “We are pleased to be partners with the state of Tennessee, the Greene County Partnership and other local community leaders to facilitate existing business and industry growth.”
