DAYTON, TN (WRCB) -- Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty announced 200 jobs coming to Rhea County.

Goodman Manufacturing will expand its air conditioning and heating equipment plant in Dayton.

The expansion represents a $2 million investment and will bring 200 jobs.

Goodman Manufacturing produces residential and light commercial air conditioning and heating equipment. The Dayton plant is undergoing a major renovation to meet the growing demands of its customers throughout the world.

"I want to thank Goodman Manufacturing for their investment in Rhea County and its citizens," Haslam said.  "Existing industry expansions, along with Tennessee's strong manufacturing base and excellent work force, will help us reach our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs."

"Our employees work very hard at manufacturing the highest quality products," Aaron Cupp, General Manager of the Dayton facility said. "It's exciting to see the renovation and expansion of the Dayton facility.  And I thank everyone responsible for making this possible."

The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development's mission is to develop strategies, which help make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs. The department seeks to attract new corporate investment in Tennessee and works with Tennessee companies to facilitate expansion and economic growth.
