Institutional Casework Inc. Expands Its Union City, Tennessee Manufacturing Center

Institutional Casework Inc. will expand its current operations in the Lennox Building at 503 E. Reelfoot Ave. in Union City with the opening a new manufacturing facility. ICI will invest $6.2 million in this new facility, creating 200 new jobs in Obion County, Tennessee.

The plant will house the manufacturing of ICI laboratory-grade painted steel casework and furniture, phenolic laboratory casework and work surfaces under the division name ICI Laboratory Products Division of Union City. The company hopes to begin metal casework production in early 2016.

“Our industry realized a dramatic change in just the last few months and, we needed a building where we could take immediate possession with little or no adaptations required,” ICI President/CEO Jim Arthurs said. “For several months, ICI investigated potential sites in Henry, Carroll and Obion counties. We were delighted to find a building of adequate size, with a skilled workforce in place and where local city and county governments were willing to work with us.”

“We want to thank Institutional Casework Inc. for choosing to expand in Tennessee and the new jobs in Union City and Obion County,” said Governor Bill Haslam. “Our focus has been not only fostering a business climate that helps businesses be created here but also grow and succeed, and it’s exciting to see companies like ICI thriving and expanding their footprint here in Tennessee.”

“Institutional Casework Inc. started their business in West Tennessee in 2006 and is once again making an impact on this area by expanding and creating valuable new jobs,” Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “I appreciate ICI’s investment in Tennessee and I look forward to their continued success in our state.”
