NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty and Representative Debra Maggart (R—Hendersonville) today joined with MGM Industries executives to announce expansion plans for the company’s Hendersonville facility. The expansion represents an investment of $3 million and the creation of 75 jobs during a three-year period. The additional jobs will include production, engineering and maintenance positions.
“Congratulations to MGM Industries on their commitment to Sumner County,” Hagerty said. “The race for new jobs is now a global competition, and when an existing Tennessee company chooses to expand and grow in our state, it reaffirms we have the right strategies in place. Governor Haslam’s economic development plan for our state is working and yielding results.”
Maggart stated, “People understand Sumner County is open for business because of our unique location, network of roadways, and strong workforce. Combining that with our State’s right to work status, balanced budgets, and low taxes, Tennessee is on the right path.” On the expansion she added, “MGM is a great example of how to run a business properly: conservative budgeting, low-debt management, and smart investments. Running a business in this way ensures jobs and economic development for our community.”
Founded in Hendersonville in 1965, MGM Industries has been making high quality fenestration products for residential and light commercial construction projects large and small for over 45 years. The family-operated company manufactures custom painted vinyl window and doors.
“We have positioned our company for the future by making a $1 million capital investment to painted vinyl windows and doors,” Joe Gaskins, vice president of sales, MGM Industries, said. “We are also introducing a new brand of paint which will be branded ‘Uncle Omer’s Premium Vinyl Paint.’ To support this new brand, MGM is investing in technologies that offer custom colors which will be created within the manufacturing umbrella of MGM Industries.”
