UPDATE: Denso expands, adds 400 new jobs at Athens facility

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, TN (WRCB) -

Officials of the state of Tennessee and automotive parts manufacturer Denso announced an $85 million expansion for the Athens facility, which is expected to bring 400 new jobs to the area over the next three years.

The announcement marks Denso’s third major investment in an 18-month period. The overall expansion effort will represent a total investment of approximately $190 million and more than 700 new jobs.

The Athens expansion will include building a new 224,000 square foot facility at its existing location.

Production at the new facility will begin in July 2016.

“We want to thank DENSO for its third big investment in the last year and a half, creating 400 new jobs in McMinn County,” Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said. “In Tennessee, we’re focused on a business environment that not only makes companies confident to locate here but also gives them the support to grow and expand. Today’s announcement is great news for Athens and brings us another step closer toward our goal to make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

The company’s latest generation of gasoline direct injection technology is geared to deliver more power and lower emissions.

Denso currently employs more than 1,450 and has been producing fuel injectors since 1998 for the North American region.
