Manufacturers in Tennessee have been on a roll in 2018. Manufacturers like Riviana Foods, Volkswagen, DENSO, and Martin Technologies have invested millions to expand their facilities and create hundreds of new manufacturing jobs across Tennessee.

JDS Technologies, a plastics and rubber manufacturer based in Tennessee, is investing $2.2 million to open a second manufacturing facility in the state, planning to create 110 new jobs:

WINFIELD, Tenn.—When Jerry and Diane Slaven first saw an available 54,000-sq.-ft. facility in Scott County, Tenn., roughly 13 miles from their main manufacturing plant, they knew they had found a second location where their company, JDS Technologies Inc., could grow into.

“Before we even left the building we basically had a gentlemen’s agreement in place to first lease (then buy) the building,” said JDS Technologies President Jerry Slaven, also a co-founder of the business with his wife Diane. “The building was expandable out to 108,000 square feet, and with our growth that was extremely appealing.”

JDS Technologies ended up investing $2.2 million to establish that new manufacturing operation in the town of Winfield. It is there that the company plans to create roughly 110 new jobs over the next five years, nearly 90 of those in place by the end of 2018. It is the latest example of the rubber and plastics manufacturer’s ongoing growth odyssey.

Manufacturers in Tennessee account for 16.2 percent of the total output in the state, employing 11.5 percent of the workforce. Total output from manufacturing was $53.15 billion in 2016. In addition, there were 341,500 manufacturing employees in Tennessee in 2016, with an average annual compensation of $69,260 in 2016.
