NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A Michigan company is expanding into Madison County.
A press release from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development indicates that Ventcon, Inc. is moving to 130 Beasley Street in Jackson.
The site will house Ventcon’s first manufacturing operations outside of their hometown of Allen Park, Michigan, near Detroit.
“Ventcon’s decision to locate in Tennessee is a direct response to the opportunity and success that Blue Oval City brings to this region. We are proud to be the new manufacturing facility headquarters for Ventcon and congratulate this company on its significant victory in Jackson,” said TNECD Commissioner Stuart McWhorter.
The new sheet metal fabrication business will bring 75 new jobs to Jackson and employ more than 250 interstate people, the release said.
The release says they will invest $6.7 million in the site, which will allow them to have a location close to its major projects under contract with Ford Motor Company.
“When companies choose to invest in Tennessee, it’s a testament to our strong business climate and highly skilled workforce. I thank Ventcon for their decision to establish operations in Madison County and create 75 new manufacturing jobs so Tennesseans across the region can prosper,” Governor Bill Lee said.
“We are thrilled to locate Jackson’s first project tied to the Blue Oval City announcement. Even better, this company plans to establish a foothold here and be part of the Jackson community beyond the construction period of the assembly plant. We look forward to a long relationship with Ventcon and have no doubt it will be successful here,” said Jackson Mayor Scott Conger.
