HYLA Inc. Plans Manufacturing Center In La Vergne, Tennessee

A specialized mobile device reverse logistics technology and services provider, HYLA, Inc. will invest more than $1 million to open a new 100,000 square foot facility in La Vergne, Tennessee. The company expects to create approximately 225 new jobs in Rutherford County.

HYLA provides technology and expertise to collect, process, renew and distribute previously owned mobile devices. Upon receipt of mobile devices, HYLA’s La Vergne facility will assess the condition of each device, remove all customer data, conduct repairs as needed and resell the devices into secondary markets throughout the U.S. and around the world.

“We are excited about our new mobile device reverse logistics technology facility. We selected the State of Tennessee, Rutherford County and La Vergne due to its central location, business friendly environment, and high-quality talent pool. We look forward to becoming an active member of the community and working together with local organizations to bring additional employment and prosperity to this region,” Biju Nair, President & CEO of HYLA, Inc., said.

Governor Bill Haslam said, “With our strong workforce and central location, Tennessee is the prime location for companies like HYLA to call home. I appreciate HYLA for its commitment to Tennessee and for bringing us one step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“When a company chooses to locate new operations in Tennessee, it sends a strong message that our state’s business-friendly environment and highly skilled workforce are assets that will help companies succeed,” Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said.

“Rutherford County continues to attract new companies with its pro-business environment and strong workforce,” Destination Rutherford Chairman Bill Jones said.
