GROUP Riccardo Meucci said. “In addition to the size and breadth of its markets, we believe the U.S. has excellent prospects for growth.

“I have enjoyed getting to know SO.F.TER. management and appreciate their decision to locate in Tennessee,” Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “SO.F.TER.’s investment underscores the momentum our state is enjoying in such a globally competitive market as companies seek the best location for long-term capital investment.
