Lochinvar Expands Lebanon, Tennessee, Headquarters Operations

Lochinvar, a company that specializes in high-efficiency water heating, plans to expand manufacturing operations at its headquarters in Lebanon, Tennessee. The $35 million project is expected to create 141 jobs in Wilson County.

The investment will allow the company to house its engineering, product management and support, platform electronics and development laboratories under one roof.

“We’re pleased to receive this support from the State of Tennessee as it recognizes the state’s commitment to fostering growth in the region to improve our economy and create good paying jobs for Tennessee residents. We are excited to construct a center where innovation and technology thrive, as well as provide a state-of-the-art environment in which our employees can grow their careers while creating and innovating,” Stephen O’Brien, SVP, president and general manager, Lochinvar, said.

Lochinvar manufactures residential and commercial boilers, commercial water heaters, heat pumps, pool and spa heaters and storage tanks.

“Companies always have a choice in where they do business, and we are grateful that Lochinvar has once again placed its trust in Tennessee. Lebanon’s pro-business climate, proximity to the greater Nashville region and access to both higher education institutions and technical schools will ensure Lochinvar’s success in the years to come,” noted TNECD Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter.

“TVA and Middle Tennessee Electric congratulate Lochinar on its decision to expand operations and create new job opportunities in Wilson County. It’s always an exciting day when we can celebrate a company’s commitment to continued growth in the region. We are proud to partner with the Joint Economic Development Board of Wilson County and the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to help support companies, like Lochinar, and look forward to its continued business success,” added John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of economic development.
