NewBasis Establishes Lebanon, Tennessee, Operations

NewBasis, a manufacturer of fiberglass and polymer concrete below-ground enclosures and utility pads, plans to establish operations in Wilson County, Tennessee. The $16.3 million project is expected to create 249 jobs.

The new facility, located at the Alligood Industrial Park, will directly support its increased customer demand across the East Coast.

“NewBasis is all about providing unparalleled service and best-in-class products to our customers. After an exhaustive search, we found the State of Tennessee to be the ideal partner for our new state-of-the-art facility as we look to better serve our central and southeastern U.S. markets. With access to the vibrant workforce in and around Wilson County, Tennessee’s business-friendly environment and the area’s unsurpassed logistics network, we couldn’t be more excited about our future,” NewBasis, LLC President Tony Helf said.

“With more than 2,600 manufacturing businesses across the state, this industry is one of Tennessee’s strongest sectors. Lebanon and Wilson County have the right workforce and infrastructure to support these 250 new jobs, and we are excited to see the success that follow today’s announcement,” noted TNECD Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter.

Riverside, California-based NewBasis is a manufacturer of below ground enclosures (handholes) for telecommunication, CATV, electrical, light traffic, lighting and industrial applications.

“TVA and Middle Tennessee Electric congratulate NewBasis on its decision to establish operations in Wilson County. Helping to attract companies creating jobs and investment in the region is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service. We are proud to partner with the Joint Economic Development Board of Wilson County and the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to further that mission and look forward to future success for NewBasis,” added John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of economic development.
