(NASHVILLE, TN), January 9, 2012 – State Senator Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) said today that the decision by Precision Coils to relocate to Haywood County preserves local jobs as the company expands job opportunities for other West Tennessee workers. Gresham said that although the move is a loss for Fayette County, the company’s relocation to neighboring Haywood County will help keep local workers already employed by the company on the job, while expanding opportunities for new employment.
“I am very pleased that Precision Coils will stay close to their current workforce, while expanding job opportunities for West Tennesseans,” said Senator Gresham. “I appreciate the work done on this project by the Governor, Commissioner Hagerty, and our local officials to keep this company here in West Tennessee.”
Precision Coils, a business of Unison™ Comfort Technologies, specializes in manufacturing competitively-priced, precision-engineered replacement and OEM coils. The company secured a lease for an existing 60,000 square foot facility in the Brownsville Industrial Park after the company could not secure space in the existing facility. The company has immediate plans to add an additional 20,000 square feet to the facility. Increasing demand for the Precision Coils product line has made the move to a larger facility with expansion capability necessary. The expansion represents an investment of $3.7 million and the creation of 26 new jobs.
“We must continue to foster a good business environment to keep the state a good place to do business and attract new jobs to Tennessee,” added Gresham. “I look forward to working with Governor Haslam, our Economic and Community Development team and our local officials to do just that.”
