- Aluminum door and window manufacturer will relocate manufacturing and distribution operations from Long Island City, New York to Bolivar, Tennessee
BOLIVAR, Tenn. – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Wall Innovations, LLC officials announced today the company has chosen Bolivar for its U.S. manufacturing and distribution base, relocating these functions from Long Island City, New York.
As part of its relocation to Bolivar, Wall Innovations will invest $6.4 million and create 72 new jobs over the next five years.
Prior to 2020, Wall Innovations’ U.S. manufacturing operations were based in upstate New York, but due to a decline in workforce, production ceased. In an effort to resume manufacturing, Wall Innovations has chosen to construct a new facility at the Bolivar Industrial Park, a Select Tennessee Certified Site.
Upon completion, the 18,500-square-foot facility will house Wall Innovations’ manufacturing and distribution operations, where the company will specialize in high-end and affordable architectural aluminum systems in continuity with its New York company, Alumil Fabrication, a U.S. subsidiary of Alumil Fabrications S.A.
In the last five years, TNECD has supported more than 60 economic development projects in the Southwest Tennessee region, resulting in nearly 10,500 job commitments and approximately $6.6 billion in capital investment.
