Swiss-Based TE Connectivity, a global industrial technology leader that manufactures connectors and sensors officials, will invest more than $15.7 million to expand its operations center in Tullahoma, Tennessee. The company plans to add approximately 100 associates in Coffee County.
TE, which employs 80,000 people at sites in 140 countries, has operated in Tullahoma since 1997. With this expansion, TE Connectivity plans on updating its current facility in Tullahoma and adding new equipment to its operations. The Tullahoma site produces connectors that empower heavy construction, mining and agriculture equipment, as well as commercial vehicles.
“We have a very dedicated team in Tullahoma that has worked very hard over the last few years to win new business. I am happy to see all of the hard work pay off. This is great news for the plant and the community, and we are excited to expand our workforce in Tullahoma as our growth continues,” TE Connectivity Plant Manager Bryan Hall said.
“Tennessee puts a major emphasis on recruiting foreign direct investment to our state. TE Connectivity is one of 49 Swiss companies that call Tennessee home, and we appreciate the company’s decision to expand in Tullahoma and continue to invest in our state,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said.
“We are excited about this development and I want to thank Bryan Hall and his team at TE Connectivity for this investment in our city. They have been a valued member of our business community for many years now, and their increased presence will make Tullahoma’s economic vitality even stronger. I want to thank TNECD and TVA’s Economic Development group, who worked together with the TE Connectivity management and our local Tullahoma Area EDC and the Coffee County Industrial Board to make this happen,” Tullahoma Mayor Lane Curlee added.
“I’m thrilled that TE Connectivity has chosen to locate an additional 100 new jobs in Tullahoma. This $15.7 million investment in new high-quality jobs is facilitated by the fact we have fiber to the premise which connectivity greatly supports new and expanding businesses and entrepreneurs in our community,” Senator Janice Bowling (R-Tullahoma) said.
