Offroad and luxury camper manufacturer BRS Offroad North America will establish its headquarters and operations center in Lewis County, Tennessee. The $1.7 million project is expected to create 115 new jobs.
The company recently purchased a building, located at 320 Summertown Highway, where the company will build its Sherpa, Pursuit and Pullman models. BRS is partnering with TCAT Hohenwald to develop training opportunities and invest in the local community.
“We are delighted to partner with the City of Hohenwald, the TNECD, TVA, and the people of the city in this exciting expansion of our company. We believe the products we build and teams we grow are among the best anywhere and growing our team locally will create new opportunities that benefit our community, our team, and our customers. As you can tell from the campers we build, this is a passion for us and our team and we are only getting better,” BRS Offroad CEO Chris Brown said.
“We congratulate BRS Offroad for establishing new headquarters and manufacturing operations in Lewis County. BRS Offroad manufactures some of the highest quality RVs in the world, and we are proud to partner with the company on this project,” said TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
TNECD has supported more than 65 economic development projects in Southern Middle Tennessee over the last five years, resulting in approximately 8,600 job commitments and $3.7 billion in capital investment.
“On behalf of the City of Hohenwald Industrial Development Board, I would like to personally thank everyone that has worked so hard to help bring BRS Offroad to Hohenwald. I would also like to thank Bryant Haines and Chris Brown from BRS for their commitment, vision and hard work in making this happen. This is a great opportunity for our wonderful community, which will bring much needed jobs and revenue to Hohenwald and Lewis County, and I can only say again, thank you all for making this happen, and I look forward to a wonderful working and community relationship with BRS Offroad,” noted Terrell Yeiser, president, Hohenwald Industrial Development Board.
