MT. JULIET, Tenn. – A workholding and automation company has announced plans to add more than 200 new jobs to the area by bringing one of its facilities to Wilson County.

The announcement was made Tuesday by Governor Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd, along with officials from the company, DE-STA-CO.

According to a release, DE-STA-CO is a workholding and automation company that provides productivity solutions to the manufacturing industry.

The move will bring 245 new jobs to Mt. Juliet.

“This new facility supports our focus on developing and manufacturing market-leading high-performance workholding and automation solutions,” said DE-STA-CO President Mats Ceder. “A consolidated manufacturing operation helps us achieve a number of customer service, innovation and efficiency goals, and positions the company for further growth.”

Some of their manufacturing facilities in Michigan and Illinois will be phased out in a consolidation process over the next 18 to 24 months.
