Truform Manufacturing, an automotive and appliance supplier, will invest approximately $14 million to expand its operations in Dickson, Tennessee. The company plans to create nearly 90 jobs over the next five years.
The company will add approximately 40,000 square feet to its Dickson operations, where the company currently employs approximately 160 people. Truform anticipates the new expansion will be open and operational in the third quarter of 2019.
A subsidiary of Sisler Manufacturing Group, Truform operates an ISO/IATF 16949 metal stamping and assembly facility in Dickson, producing components and modular assemblies for Tier-1 suppliers and OEMs in the automotive and appliance industries. The expansion is driven by growth in both appliance and automotive segments.
“This is an exciting time for our company, and we are very pleased to bring more job opportunities to the Dickson community,” said Jon Sisler, president and CEO of Sisler Manufacturing Group. “The expansion of our Dickson facility will allow us to address the growing demand we are experiencing in the appliance and automotive industries in the U.S.”
“TruForm Manufacturing is writing the textbook on how to succeed in the 21st Century metal fabrication market,” said Dickson County Mayor Bob Rial. “Truform is diversified, service-oriented, and constantly striving for the best quality possible. Dickson County is proud to call Truform a homegrown industry.”
“Tennessee’s existing businesses are the driving force behind our economic growth and job creation,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “Truform’s expansion underscores the many advantages Tennessee offers global businesses. This is Truform’s third major expansion since 2012, and I’d like to thank the company for creating nearly 90 quality job opportunities in Middle Tennessee and strengthening its commitment to Dickson County.”
