“The State of Tennessee has a pro-business climate and is aggressively attracting international manufacturing companies like ours. Establishing a manufacturing operation in Tennessee will allow us to better collaborate and serve our valued customers throughout North America while demonstrating that Taiwanese innovation has a home in the southeastern U.S.,” Howard Cheng, CEO, Xxentria Technology Materials Co., Ltd. explained.

“TVA and Mt. Pleasant Power System congratulate Xxentria on its decision to establish operations in Maury County.
