Kelvion Expands Knoxville, Tennessee, Operations

Kelvion Inc., the global heat exchanger manufacturer, will expand its operations at Forks of the River Valley Industrial Park in Knoxville, Tennessee. The $3.8 million project is expected to create 74 jobs in Knox County.

The company will increase production of its innovative heat exchangers, which can be offered as configurable or customized, for the Refrigeration and Data Center Industries. The goals of expansion in the U.S. and globally are to improve its customers’ experience, harmonize product technology, expand production capabilities and reduce costs.

“It has been the honor and privilege of Kelvion to expand in Knoxville where we have received the full support of the community and its leaders from the outset. Growing our business in the U.S. is one of the top strategic objectives for Kelvion, and we hope that this Knoxville expansion will be the first of many as we further establish ourselves as the partner of choice in the Refrigeration and Data Center Industries,” Simon Jones, president, Kelvion Refrigeration Technology Business Unit said.

“Nearly fifty percent of new job commitments in East Tennessee are the result of expansions, proving that Tennessee provides the ideal pro-business climate for companies to grow. We thank Kelvion for creating more than 70 new family-wage jobs and investing again in Knox County,” noted Bob Rolfe, Commissioner of TNECD.

Kelvion is one of the leading global manufacturers of heat exchangers, providing solutions for almost every industrial application since the 1920s, specializing in customized solutions suitable for extreme environmental conditions.

“TVA and Knoxville Utilities Board congratulate Kelvion on its decision to expand operations and create new job opportunities in Knox County. It’s always an exciting day when we can celebrate a company’s continued commitment to growth in the Valley. We are proud to partner with the Knoxville Chamber, East Tennessee Economic Development Agency and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to support companies, like Kelvion’s, business success and celebrate this announcement together,” John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development noted.
