Simpson Strong-Tie will invest $110 million to expand in Gallatin by locating a new facility in Tennessee. Simpson Strong-Tie will create an additional 37 new jobs in Sumner County.
The new location will allow Simpson Strong-Tie to better meet its growing product demand and relocate a portion of its fastener manufacturing operations to Gallatin. Simpson Strong-Tie selected local design-build developer, Al. Neyer, as a full-service real estate partner for the project. Upon completion, the company will employ nearly 250 people across Tennessee.
A part of Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc., Simpson Strong-Tie is a leading manufacturer of high-quality wood and concrete construction solutions that help people design and build safer, stronger homes, building and communities. At its Gallatin facility, the company produces structural screws, nails and its Quik Drive collated fastening systems.
Mike Olosky, president and CEO, Simpson Strong-Tie, said: “This expansion more than doubles our current production capacity and footprint, enabling us to meet increased product demand and keep fastener manufacturing close to our North America customers. The new site will also improve efficiency, help ensure we continue to provide exceptional customer service, and open up career opportunities for employees and job applicants alike.”
