LEWISBURG, Tenn.- A plant expansion will soon bring nearly 100 jobs to the Lewisburg area.
Officials with the TeleDyne Electronic Manufacturing Services announced on Monday that they would be expanding the company's Marshall County facility for a new product line. Officials expect the line to bring a nearly $10 million investment and 96 new jobs over the next five years.
"Congratulations to Teledyne on the addition of a new product line to their already successful operations in Lewisburg," said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty. "The jobs that advanced manufacturers like Teledyne provide are good, quality positions for Tennesseans and have been a focus of our recruitment strategy. I appreciate the company's confidence in our workforce."
The TeleDyne facility in Lewisburg has been supplying electronics to the defense and aerospace industry for more than thirty years
"The exciting part about it is that it contains a whole range of new technologies that we don't currently perform here," Shane Green, vice president and general manager of Teledyne EMS of Lewisburg, said. "This will allow us to provide a broader range of products and services to the customer base. We feel like this is going to be a strong competitive position for us and enable growth of the business over time. To our knowledge, we will be unique in the area with hybrid manufacturing, chip and wire technology, and chip integration technology."
The company will be hiring engineers, operators, and technicians. It was not clear when hiring would begin.
