Mueller Water Products Expands Facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee
Mueller Water Products will invest in its domestic manufacturing capabilities and introduce additive manufacturing technologies to its foundries. The Chattanooga facility expansion is driven by growing demand for water infrastructure products among municipalities, and will support the expected future demand as America rebuilds its aging infrastructure.
“This is an exciting time for our company and we are very pleased to bring more job opportunities to the Chattanooga community,” Scott Hall, President & CEO of Mueller Water Products, said. “The expansion of our Chattanooga facility will allow us to address the growing demand for U.S. manufactured water infrastructure products while also investing in growing cities like Chattanooga.”
The company plans to begin hiring between January and March 2019. It currently employs 604 Tennesseans and has additional locations in Cleveland and Chattanooga’s Innovation District.
“I’d like to thank Mueller Water Products for its decision to create jobs and invest further in its operations in Chattanooga,” Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “This expansion speaks volumes to our skilled workforce, Tennessee’s favorable environment for manufacturing companies and the strong partnership among the State, Tennessee Valley Authority and local officials. I’m encouraged by the creation of nearly 100 quality jobs in Chattanooga and look forward to the continued impact Mueller Water Products will have for the citizens of Southeast Tennessee.”
“Mueller Water Products is a longstanding company locally with a history of creating solid jobs for Hamilton County residents,” Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger said. “I congratulate the company on its latest expansion and wish it every success for the future.”
