Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty, along with VIAM Manufacturing and Coffee County officials, announced Wednesday an expansion of the company’s facility on Park Tower Drive in Manchester, creating 75 new jobs.
The expansion represents a $9 million investment and will bring VIAM’s operating space to 507,000 square-feet at its Coffee County facility.
VIAM chief operating officer Keith Hayes said that officials in Manchester would like to thank their parent company (Japan Vilene Co.) for the confidence they have placed in them, the local representatives of Coffee County and Manchester for their support through the years and last, but certainly not least, the State of Tennessee and the ECD department for all their support.
Coffee County Mayor David Pennington added that expansions like these are key to local growth. Bill Comer with the Coffee County Industrial Board added that these expansions provide high quality jobs.
