Choate Engineering Performance Plans Bolivar, Tennessee, Auto Engine-Components Plant

Choate Engineering Performance will invest $8 million to establish new operations in Bolivar, Tennessee. The company plans to create 100 jobs over the next five years in Hardeman County.

The company will retrofit and make improvements to an existing 155,000-square-foot facility, located at 1033 Lake Street in Bolivar, where the company will manufacture engines and components for the automotive industry.

"We are excited about the opportunity to grow Choate Engineering Performance in the city of Bolivar, Tennessee. The assistance of Mayor McTizic of Bolivar and Chelsey Scott Wallace of TNECD has been encouraging, and instrumental in our choice for this location. We are ready to go to work, and with the help of the Lord bring more jobs to this community,” said Cass Choate, founder, Choate Engineering Performance.

“With more than 900 automotive related companies doing business in our state, Tennessee has earned its position as a global leader in the automotive industry. We appreciate Choate Engineering Performance for pledging to create 100 new, family-wage jobs in Hardeman County, one of the state’s least economically prosperous counties, and wish the company much success with its new operations in Bolivar,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe noted.

Over the last five years, TNECD has supported more than 65 economic development projects in Southwest Tennessee, resulting in approximately 4,800 job commitments and $1 billion in capital investment.

“TVA and Bolivar Energy Authority congratulate Choate Engineering Performance on its decision to establish operations in Whiteville. We are proud to partner with the City of Bolivar, Bolivar Industrial Development Board, Hardeman County and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to support companies, like Choate Engineering Performance’s business success in the Valley,” John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development said.
