Japan-based OTICS USA, Inc., an automobile parts manufacturer, will expand its manufacturing operations at its U.S. headquarters in Morristown, Tennessee. The $147 million project is expected to create 70 jobs in Hamblen County.

The additional 55,000-square-feet of space on Interstate View Drive will allow the company to accommodate new business growth and increased fuel pipe production capabilities.

“We are very proud of the fourth expansion of our Morristown facility and excited about our new projects. Our continued growth and expansion are a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our team members,” Charlotte Jennelle, General Manager/Division Head OTICS USA, Inc. said.

OTICS USA, Inc. was founded in 2001 as a subsidiary to OTICS Corporation, which is based in Japan. Headquartered in Morristown, the company manufactures parts for major automotive corporations.

“OTICS USA’s expansion in Morristown is a testament to our state’s rich history in the automotive industry, and we stand ready to support this global brand so that it continues to succeed in the Volunteer State. Congratulations to Morristown and Hamblen County on landing another great manufacturing win,” TNECD Commissioner Stuart McWhorter noted.
