“Our state’s rich history in the automotive industry paired with our pro-business climate have propelled Tennessee forward as a leader in the electric vehicle evolution. We are proud to be home to Unitech’s first U.S. facility and will continue to be a strong partner as this company locates operations in Morrison,” TNECD Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter noted.
