Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Truform Manufacturing LLC officials announced last week that the automotive and appliance supplier will invest approximately $14 million to expand its operations in Dickson. This will create almost 90 jobs over the next five years.
“I am very pleased to see Truform Manufacturing expand operations in Dickson County,” said Senator Kerry Roberts, who represents the county in the State Senate, “We welcome these new jobs. Dickson County is a great place to work, live, and raise a family.”
Roberts congratulates Truform Manufacturing and state and local officials who helped secure the new jobs and is looking forward to seeing the opportunities that will come as a result of the expansion
“Truform’s expansion underscores the many advantages Tennessee offers global businesses,” said Rolfe, “This is Truform’s third major expansion since 2012.”
A subsidiary of Sisler Manufacturing Group, Truform operates a stamping and assembly facility in Dickson. The expansion is driven by growth in both appliance and automotive segments.
The company will add about 40,000 square feet to its Dickson operation, where the company currently employs about 160 Tennesseans. Truform anticipates the new expansion will be open and operational in the third quarter in 2019.
“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,” said President and CEO of Sisler Manufacturing Group Jon Sisler.
Local officials and the Tennessee Valley Authority have praised Truform for its expansion in Dickson County.
