Mueller announces new Tennessee facility

AFS Corporate Member Mueller Water Products announced it is adding a Kimball, Tennessee, facility that is expected to bring 325 jobs.

Mueller is investing $41 million in the project, which will use a 233,000 sq. ft. building that was vacated when another company closed this spring.

“The new location in Marion County supports the expansion of our manufacturing capabilities around our Chattanooga operations,” Mueller Water Products president and CEO Scott Hall said in a news release.

The facility is expected to open in 2020.

“This is a high-quality global company. This is a major manufacturer for the construction industry as well as multiple other industries that they serve with the products they create,” Tennessee governor Bill Lee said, according to the Times Free Press. “We are incredibly fortunate to have a company of this caliber locate here in Marion County.”
