Ditech Testing, a company that specializes in refurbishing all types of cylinders and tanks for the liquid petroleum industry, will locate a new facility in Lewisburg, Tennessee, in the Southern Carriers Building at 1801 Childress Road. The company’s expansion project will be an investment of more than $5.6 million and create 77 new jobs.
“Ditech is a premium refurbisher/recertifyer of propane cylinders and tanks. We provide our clients with industry leading services, innovation, quality and turnaround times,” Ditech Vice President Jason Gildart said. “Ditech has set ‘the standard’ in the refurbishing industry. Our continued growth is fueled by our commitment to providing our clients with solutions to help them reduce costs by saving depreciating assets and delivering them on time throughout their demographic territories hassle free. We are a cut above the rest and our dedication to our customers has no boundaries. We are thrilled to have made Lewisburg, Tennessee our new home for the southeastern United States."
Ditech is a designated cylinder recertifier of both U.S. and Canadian tanks, as required by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Transport Canada and The Canadian Gas Association regulations including hydrotesting and external visual inspection. With the opening of the new Lewisburg facility, Ditech will service 85 percent of North America with plans to provide cylinder and tank refurbishing and certification throughout the entire continent by 2016.
“Tennessee’s momentum in the global business environment of today cannot be underestimated,” Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “Companies around the world know our central location, strong infrastructure and healthy business climate along with the craftsmanship and quality of our workforce can make a real competitive difference. I welcome Ditech Testing to Tennessee and appreciate the jobs and investment the company is making in Marshall County.”

"We could not be happier that they chose Lewisburg and we look forward to beginning a long-lasting partnership with them. There were many people working behind the scenes to assist the project coming to Lewisburg and I just want to thank the State of Tennessee Economic Development Department and Cassidy Turley for all their hard work in bringing this outstanding company to Lewisburg.”
