Global Track Manufacturing USA Locates Manufacturing Plant in Milan, Tennessee
The company currently operates a manufacturing facility in China. The Milan facility will be Global Track’s second plant, and the company anticipates production will begin there in the summer of 2020. Global Track will create 250 jobs at the new plant in Gibson County. The company has located its manufacturing operations in the former Tower Automotive plant in Milan.
“The Milan facility is Global Track’s first U.S. manufacturing plant, and I want to thank Mayor BW Beasley and his economic development staff for their hard work over the past two years. Mayor Beasley and his team have worked tirelessly to help Global Track get our building operational, act as an advocate for us in Washington, D.C. regarding tariff issues, establish U.S. banking relationships, and have been supportive in every aspect. I am confident we made the right decision to locate in Milan, and I look forward to growing our U.S. customer base and creating jobs for the citizens of Milan and Gibson County,” said Barry Min, President & Owner of Global Track Manufacturing.
“Global Track’s decision to invest in Milan is a resounding vote of confidence in Tennessee and our workforce. More and more global companies are finding out that Tennessee is the perfect place to do business, and I look forward to the creation of 250 quality jobs in Milan and Gibson County, said Governor Bill Lee.
“I am pleased to see Global Track invest in Tennessee. Li Weaver, TNECD’s representative in China, and our international team played an instrumental role in landing this project. Tennessee’s skilled workforce creates world-renowned products, and this substantial investment promises to inject hundreds of terrific, family wage jobs in Gibson County and Milan,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said.
“I am excited to formally announce this project as the City of Milan has been working with Barry Min and Global Track over the last two years since the company purchased the former Tower Automotive facility. Global Track has been manufacturing rubber tracks out of its China facility for many years with a great amount of success, and I look forward to the Milan facility achieving even greater success as the company grows the Global Track manufacturing footprint. This is a very exciting day for Milan and Gibson County, and I am grateful to Barry Min and Global Track for choosing Milan for the company’s U.S. manufacturing location,” Milan Mayor BW Beasley noted.
“On behalf of the Milan Industrial Development Board, I want to thank Barry Min and Global Track for choosing Milan as the home for its first U.S. manufacturing location. We look forward to helping the company achieve great success as it grows its U.S. manufacturing presence and creates quality jobs for the citizens of Milan,” Milan Industrial Development Board Chairman Lynn Arnold added.
