Gov. Bill Halsam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty today announced the creation of a new $32 million manufacturing facility in Manchester, Tenn.
VICAM, a new subsidiary of Japanese company Japan Vilene Company, will use the facility to produce polyester-based carpet fiber for use in car doors and seats. The 44,000-square-foot plant, managed by VIAM Manufacturing, will be located on a 12-acre site and is scheduled to open in January. The project is expected to create 70 jobs.
“Governor Haslam and I are focused on how we can best retain and grow jobs in Tennessee, and VICAM’s new facility will certainly help us further that goal,” said Hagerty. “It is a testament to Tennessee and Coffee County’s attractiveness to business when companies with an established presence in our state like VIAM Manufacturing help create new jobs and encourage new ventures.”
