Canada-Based Advanced Design Solutions Chooses Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, for Manufacturing Facility

Advanced Design Solutions Inc., the auto supplier, will invest $10 million to locate its operations in part of the former Murray Ohio Manufacturing Company facility in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. The company plans to create 180 jobs.

Headquartered in Ontario, Canada, Advanced Design Solutions manufactures steel shipping racks for the auto industry. The company also operates a facility in Middletown, Ohio. Once it has completed renovations, the company anticipates it will start production in June 2019.

“Advanced Design Solutions is excited to be growing in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. Everyone we have met in Lawrenceburg has been exceptionally helpful. I came down to start my business here and feel like the community will grow this Lawrenceburg company. We look forward to supporting our existing customers and growing our customer base in this region,” said Mark Booker, Advanced Design Solutions President & Founder.

“There’s no better place in America for auto companies to operate than the Volunteer State. This investment from Advanced Design Solutions in Lawrence County is a testament to the strong workforce across rural Tennessee, and I’d like to thank the company for its commitment to creating 180 new high quality jobs,” said Governor Bill Lee.

“Tennessee offers auto companies a whole host of advantages, from our deep labor pool of skilled employees to close proximity to hundreds of fellow businesses in the industry. The creation of these family wage jobs will inject valuable salaries into the Lawrence County community, and I’m pleased to see Advanced Design Solutions make this considerable investment in Tennessee,” said Bob Rolfe, Commissioner of TNECD.
