Simpson Strong-Tie Expands Gallatin, Tennessee, Operations

Simpson Strong-Tie, a leader in structural systems research and technology, plans to expand its operations in Gallatin, Tennessee. The $110 million project is expected to create 37 new jobs in Sumner County.

The new facility, located on Airport Road, will allow the company to better meet its growing product demand and relocate a portion of its fastener manufacturing operations.

“This expansion more than doubles our current production capacity and footprint, enabling us to meet increased product demand and keep fastener manufacturing close to our North America customers. The new site will also improve efficiency, help ensure we continue to provide exceptional customer service, and open up career opportunities for employees and job applicants alike,” said Mike Olosky, president and CEO, Simpson Strong-Tie.

A part of Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc., Simpson Strong-Tie is a leading manufacturer of high-quality wood and concrete construction solutions that help people design and build safer, stronger homes, buildings and communities.

The company’s $110 million investment will play a vital role in strengthening our state’s economy for years to come,” TNECD Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter noted.
