DE-STA-CO Plans Mount Juliet, Tennessee, Manufacturing Center

A company that specializes in the innovation, design and manufacture of clamping and robotic tooling solutions for workholding and automation needs, DE-STA-CO will consolidate several of its U.S. manufacturing operations by locating a new facility at 210 Mundy Memorial Drive in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. The project is expected to create 245 jobs in Wilson County.

In an effort to better serve North American and global customers, the Middle Tennessee facility will integrate product offerings and improve the company’s supply chain. “DE-STA-CO is one company with one vision,” company President Mats Ceder said. “This is our overarching direction for 2015 and beyond. Capturing synergies throughout our company will result in benefits to our customers and expanding market leadership.

“This new facility supports our focus on developing and manufacturing market-leading high-performance workholding and automation solutions,” Ceder added. “A consolidated manufacturing operation helps us achieve a number of customer service, innovation and efficiency goals, and positions the company for further growth.”

The consolidation process will be completed in multiple phases over the next 18 to 24 months. DE-STA-CO will maintain its customer service and engineering presence in Auburn Hills and Wheeling, as well as its Regional Americas and corporate offices in Auburn Hills, and its remote handling equipment business in Red Wing, Minnesota.

“Today’s announcement is great news for Wilson County, and we want to thank DE-STA-CO for its decision to locate and create new jobs in Mount Juliet,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Tennessee’s geographic location is an incredible advantage when we’re out recruiting businesses to locate and grow here, and today brings us another step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“It’s always a great day when we get the opportunity to welcome a new business to the Volunteer State,” Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “DE-STA-CO will be a great fit in Tennessee as it supports companies in our thriving automotive, aerospace, and food and agribusiness sectors. I thank DE-STA-CO for choosing to locate in Mount Juliet and for creating more than 200 new jobs for our Middle Tennessee workforce.”

Tennessee Valley Authority and Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation congratulate DE-STA-CO on its decision to expand operations in Wilson County and create additional job opportunities,” TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said. “We are pleased to partner with the state of Tennessee, the Joint Economic and Community Development Board of Wilson County, city of Mount Juliet and Wilson County officials to facilitate DE-STA-CO’s growth.”
