American Colors Inc. Plans Manufacturing And Research Facility In Sumner County, Tennessee
To support ongoing growth at the company’s existing Lebanon location, American Colors will invest $3.7 million and create 31 new jobs. The Gallatin, Tennessee, facility will produce products for the composites, coatings, plastics and agricultural industries and also include a research lab housing chemists and technicians.
“Our increased business and additional opportunities have required American Colors to increase our capacity in Tennessee,” American Colors Inc. President/CEO James Oram Wible said. “We look forward to creating a state of the art facility in order to continue to provide superior colorants and dispersions to the composites and coatings industries.”
American Colors anticipates the facility will be fully operational by the first quarter of 2015. In addition to the company’s Tennessee facilities, American Colors has manufacturing locations in Sandusky, Ohio and Shanghai, China to serve the company’s Asian markets.
“Incumbent industry expansions are an essential element to help spur job creation in our state, and with nearly 45,000 Tennesseans employed within the chemicals and plastics sector, I am pleased to see American Colors add to that number,” Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “I appreciate the company’s continued confidence in our state’s qualified workforce and for choosing to further invest in Tennessee.”
