The state economic development department and a Japanese company announced Tuesday they will expand a plant in Portland, TN, which will create 70 new, full-time jobs.
Officials said U.S. Tsubaki Automotive, LLC will make a $1.9 million investment at their facility located on Davis Street. The company said the additional jobs will be a mixture of production and engineering positions.
"With more than 900 auto manufacturers and suppliers in the state, Tennessee continues to prove itself a prime location for the auto industry and companies like Tsubaki Automotive," Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. "We are grateful Tsubaki calls Tennessee home and has chosen to further invest in our state and its citizens."
Tsubaki Automotive builds chain drive systems for engines and transmissions. Their customers include General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Nissan and Honda.
To fill the new positions, a job fair will be held Feb. 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Sumner County Career Center, located at 175 College St. in Gallatin, TN.
