Nissan will be investing $160 million in order to build a new supplier park.
“Nissan and Tennessee have enjoyed a long and successful partnership, and today’s announcement is another significant milestone in our history together,” Haslam said in a release. “The success of Tennessee’s automotive industry brings with it growth in supplier networks, and we want to thank Nissan for this new investment in Smyrna and our state.”
A 1.5 million square foot logistics center is to be constructed at the Smyrna campus. The projects should be completed by 2017 and are expected to bring more than 1,000 new jobs to Rutherford County.
