CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - A New boost comes to the Scenic City job market.

Friday, Chattem showed off their third manufacturing plant on Broad Street, a $35 million investment.

The new facility creates 70 jobs.

These employees will use specialized equipment designed for Chattem, in the production of ACT mouth wash.

And the jobs leave little room for error.

"It's a great company, but a very demanding company and they expect your quality of work to be very high," says Bryan Smith a maintenance worker for Chattem.

Chattem expects to produce 22 million bottles of mouth wash by the end of 2011.

The CEO says the company is on track to reach a billion dollars in sales.

The plant officially opens on Monday.
