The ceremony was the second that day for the company as Husqvarna Plastics, located north of town, also hosted an event as the company “flipped the switch” for a new solar power installation.
Joe Wilson, Human Resources Director, says the company is committed to Nashville and growing local industry.
Steve Harvill, plant manager, presented some initial data at the event and Jim Moore, Vice President Supply Chain, said Husqvarna is investing in America…while other industry invests in foreign countries.
Program Manager Todd Anderson said the project plans really ramped up the last eight months. Construction is expected to last eleven months.
The Nashville manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution footprint will exceed 874,000 square feet with the distribution center addition. Capital investment for the new facility totals approximately $24 million, including the interior racking system.
