|MGM Industries to expand Hendersonville facility|
|Thursday, July 19, 2012|
Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty joined with MGM Industries executives last week to announce expansion plans for the company’s Hendersonville facility. The expansion represents an investment of $3 million and the creation of 75 jobs during a three year period. The additional jobs will include production, engineering and maintenance positions.
“Congratulations to MGM Industries on their commitment to Sumner County,” Hagerty said. “The race for new jobs is now a global competition, and when an existing Tennessee company chooses to expand and grow in our state, it reaffirms we have the right strategies in place. Governor Haslam’s economic development plan for our state is working and yielding results.”
“We have positioned our company for the future by making a $1 million capital investment to painted vinyl windows and doors,” Joe Gaskins, vice president of sales, MGM Industries, said. “We are also introducing a new brand of paint which will be branded 'Uncle Omer's Premium Vinyl Paint.' To support this new brand, MGM is investing in technologies that offer custom colors which will be created within the manufacturing umbrella of MGM Industries."
Interested applicants can apply in person at MGM Industries in Hendersonville.
“We applaud MGM on their continued success,” said Mayor Scott Foster. “When the City partnered with the company back in 2005 to provide a $367,000 grant toward relocation of a water-line permitting a plant expansion, we were confident then they had great things in their future. MGM has become a national player in the window market. The Gaskins are great community neighbors and we look forward to watching them as they march forward in growing and serving their customers.”
