Last year, Denso Manufacturing Tennessee, Inc. (DMTN) announced a $400 million investment to expand manufacturing lines, which would result in the creation of 500 new jobs. Today, the company broke ground on a key portion of this investment – a 186,528 sq. ft. consolidated warehouse, located on its Maryville, Tenn. campus. The warehouse is due to be complete by October 2017.
The new warehouse allows DMTN to consolidate its various warehouse operations in the Maryville area and free up manufacturing space that can be used to produce products, such as head-up displays, instrument clusters and electronic control units, the company says.
“As we continue to expand, we also renew our commitment to serve our customers with our best efforts and to make important new contributions to the economic well-being of Blount County, East Tennessee and the region as whole,” says Jack Helmboldt, president and CEO of the company.
Due to the creation of 500 new jobs, Denso is currently hiring for team members in Production, Logistics, and Maintenance. Also currently needed are experienced production leaders as well as a variety of professional positions, the company says.
