Enexor BioEnergy Expands Manufacturing in Franklin, Tennessee

07/09/2019
Enexor BioEnergy LLC, the renewable energy company, will invest $5 million to expand its manufacturing complex in Franklin, Tennessee. The project is expected to create approximately 50 jobs in Williamson County over the next two years.

The company will locate its operations in a 40,000-square-foot facility at 1 Enterprise Court in Franklin, where it will conduct prototyping, testing and manufacturing.

“Enexor is very excited to move into our new 40,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. Franklin is the perfect place for us to continue recruiting great people and manufacturing our clean energy product. Enexor is thinking globally, which is another reason why the state of Tennessee is the prime location to grow in,” Enexor Founder & CEO Lee Jestings explained.

Founded in 2015, the Franklin-based startup has developed a small-scale, renewable energy system that converts organic and biomass waste into clean electricity as well as hot and chilled water. This combined heating and power system has broad applications for commercial, industrial and institutional use.

Enexor anticipates it will begin manufacturing its renewable bioenergy system in late 2019. The company plans to export its systems to countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

“Enexor’s expansion in Franklin is yet another sign that Tennessee is a fantastic place to start and grow a business. I’m committed to making Tennessee the best place in the country for entrepreneurs, and the success of innovative companies like Enexor will continue to strengthen and diversify our state’s economy,” said Governor Bill Lee.

“I’d like to thank Enexor for its continued investment in Franklin. TNECD and Launch Tennessee are proud to support the growth of homegrown startup companies such as Enexor. This expansion will bring dozens of quality job opportunities in the clean energy sector, and I look forward to a long-lasting partnership with Enexor,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said.

“Enexor is one of many Franklin based companies that has chosen to grow and expand in our community. We are proud to call them our neighbors and we look forward to their continued success,” Franklin Mayor Ken Moore said.

“Our small business community plays an important role in Williamson County’s economic success and we are always happy to celebrate with them and for them when they can expand. As a landfill operator, Williamson County welcomes businesses who seek solutions that can divert waste,” Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson explained.
