Anatolia Granite and Marble Expands Baxter, Tennessee, Manufacturing Plant
Located at 445 Ward Mill Road, the company customizes natural stone slabs, such as granite, marble, onyx and quartz, into processed countertops primarily used by building contractors and subcontractors.
“We are excited to expand Anatolia Granite’s operations in Baxter and realize that this expansion would not be possible without the leadership at the state of Tennessee and locally in Baxter and Putnam County. We have found a great community in the Upper Cumberland and look forward to continued partnerships and our company’s future growth,” Anatolia Granite and Marble Corp, president, Temel Islamoglu said.
Anatolia’s production process comprises computer programmed CNC machines, which process the stone slabs into custom made shapes that can be used as kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities or fireplaces.
“With more than 2,500 establishments operating in Tennessee, advanced manufacturing is one of our state’s most successful industries. Anatolia’s decision to expand in Putnam County will be a driving force behind Tennessee’s continued growth in this sector and would not be possible without the strong leadership at the local level. We appreciate Baxter Mayor John Martin and Putnam County Mayor Randy Porter for their partnership and involvement in this project,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
“TVA and Upper Cumberland Membership Corporation congratulate Anatolia Granite and Marble Corp on its decision to expand operations and create new job opportunities in Putnam County. Helping to foster new jobs and investment in the Valley region is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service. We are proud to partner with Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, City of Baxter, Highlands Economic Partnership, Upper Cumberland Development District, and Small Business Development Center to help further that mission and celebrate this announcement,” John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development said.
