Automotive and appliance supplier investing approximately $14 million
NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Truform Manufacturing LLC officials announced today that the automotive and appliance supplier will invest approximately $14 million to expand its operations in Dickson and create nearly 90 jobs over the next five years.
“Tennessee’s existing businesses are the driving force behind our economic growth and job creation,” Rolfe said. “Truform’s expansion underscores the many advantages Tennessee offers global businesses. This is Truform’s third major expansion since 2012, and I’d like to thank the company for creating nearly 90 quality job opportunities in Middle Tennessee and strengthening its commitment to Dickson County.”
A subsidiary of Sisler Manufacturing Group, Truform operates an ISO/IATF 16949 metal stamping and assembly facility in Dickson, producing components and modular assemblies for Tier-1 suppliers and OEMs in the automotive and appliance industries. The expansion is driven by growth in both appliance and automotive segments.
The company will add approximately 40,000 square feet to its Dickson operations, where the company currently employs approximately 160 Tennesseans. Truform anticipates the new expansion will be open and operational in the third quarter of 2019.
“This is an exciting time for our company and we are very pleased to bring more job opportunities to the Dickson community,” Jon Sisler, president and CEO of Sisler Manufacturing Group, said. “The expansion of our Dickson facility will allow us to address the growing demand we are experiencing in the appliance and automotive industries in the U.S.”
Local officials and the Tennessee Valley Authority praised Truform for its expansion in Dickson County.
“TruForm Manufacturing is writing the textbook on how to succeed in the 21st Century metal fabrication market,” Dickson County Mayor Bob Rial said. “Truform is diversified, service-oriented and constantly striving for the best quality possible. Dickson County is proud to call Truform a homegrown industry.”
“TVA and Dickson Electric congratulate Truform Manufacturing on its decision to expand operations in Dickson County,” TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said. “Helping to attract and retain quality jobs in the Valley is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service and we are proud to partner with Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, Dickson County and the city of Dickson to help further that mission.”
Dickson and Dickson County are represented by Sen. Kerry Roberts (R – Springfield), Rep. Michael Curcio (R – Dickson) and Rep. Mary Littleton (R – Dickson) in the Tennessee General Assembly.
