Maury County is actively investing in industrial and corporate office parks, where the jobs of the future are being created today.
It is an economic development strategy that capitalizes on Maury County’s position at the heart of Tennessee’s auto manufacturing industry and location along the booming Interstate 65 growth corridor between Nashville and Huntsville, Alabama, where Toyota and Mazda are building a $1.6 billion auto assembly plant.
“Maury County is blessed to be strategically located along I-65, close to I-840, between two of the hottest metro areas in the United States,” says Travis Groth, Vice President, Economic Development for the Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance.
That strategy is already creating results. Fuel Total Systems, a Japanese company, is investing about $60.9 million and creating 150 jobs at its new manufacturing facility in the Cherry Glen Industrial Park in Mt. Pleasant. The company is on the leading edge of suppliers that are expected to arrive in the region to provide parts for Toyota and Mazda in Huntsville.
Being in Maury County puts auto parts suppliers within easy reach of Huntsville, as well as Nissan in Smyrna, Volkswagen in Chattanooga and General Motors in Spring Hill.
