Topre America Corp., a Japan-based automotive supplier, will expand operations at its manufacturing facility in Smyrna, Tennessee. The automotive parts manufacturer will invest approximately $38.2 million and create 35 new jobs in Rutherford County.

Topre America provides automotive stamping and body structure assemblies for Nissan, Honda and Toyota. Construction on the expansion is scheduled to begin in July 2017. Topre America anticipates the 40,000-square-foot expansion phase to be operational in 2019.

“Topre America is pleased to be working in a community like Smyrna that supports our growth pattern,” Brad Pepper, Vice President of Topre America, said. “We’ve been successful in Rutherford County thanks to the strong workforce Tennessee offers. We’ve developed strong partnerships with the State of Tennessee and Rutherford County officials and look forward to growing in the future.”

This new expansion underscores the skilled workforce and business-friendly climate that drive Tennessee’s dynamic automotive industry.”

“The Town of Smyrna congratulates Topre America on its expansion,” Smyrna Mayor Mary Esther Reed said. “The growth of existing industry is exciting because the success of the company equals new jobs for our community.” “We congratulate Topre America on the recent expansion in Rutherford County,”
