- Corrugated box manufacturer to locate in Lebanon, invest roughly $3 million
NASHVILLE Tenn. – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Nashville Box, LLC officials announced today the startup company will invest $3.3 million to establish new operations in Wilson County.
The corrugated box manufacturer will create 48 new jobs in Lebanon.
Nashville Box will be utilizing an integrated business and manufacturing approach to service businesses with high volume corrugated packaging needs at both a regional and national level.
In recent years, the growth of e-commerce and the Tennessee economy have taken corrugated packaging demand to a generational high, in turn, creating a surplus in demand. By locating operations just outside of Nashville in Lebanon, Nashville Box will have a strategic advantage to service both Tennessee’s business growth and many major markets within a day’s drive of Nashville.
In the last five years, TNECD has supported 14 economic development projects in Wilson County resulting in 4,700 job commitments and roughly $967 million in capital investment.
