Duracell Manufacturing Expands Cleveland, Tennessee, Operations

Duracell Manufacturing will expand its existing battery component manufacturing operations in Cleveland, Tennessee. The $25 million project is expected to create 25 jobs.

The expansion will support Duracell’s LaGrange, Georgia, site by providing strategic battery components supply and allowing the company to meet and exceed its growing North American battery demand.

“The Duracell Company continues to value and invest in its Cleveland, Tennessee, manufacturing site, which has shipped C&D batteries all over the world for decades. With this investment, the site adds a new important role of supporting our greater North American supply chain. We are excited to invest in and leverage the skill sets of our current and new Duracell team members,” Stefaan Boterberg, president, Duracell Manufacturing said.

Duracell is the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of high-performance alkaline batteries, lithium coins, rechargeable batteries, and other specialty cells.

“Duracell Manufacturing’s 60-year commitment to Tennessee is a true testament to the highly skilled workforce in Bradley County. We thank Duracell for its additional investment and job creation in Cleveland and the opportunities the company will provide,” TNECD Commissioner Stuart McWhorter noted.
