AriensCo will invest $38 million to locate its new manufacturing and warehouse facility in Fayetteville, Tennessee (Lincoln County). The company will create 369 new jobs in Fayetteville, establishing operations in the former Direct Coil Building.
AriensCo’s expansion to Tennessee is in direct response to its increase in demand, which has outpaced current production capacity. The new Fayetteville site will position the company to be geographically closer to its dealer partners, customers and material suppliers in the southeastern U.S. and will also serve as the hub for AriensCo’s Gravely brand.
“We’re excited to add Fayetteville, Tennessee, to the places we call home,” says Dan Ariens, AriensCo chairman and CEO. “AriensCo isn’t just a power equipment company, we’re a fifth-generation family business of passionate people dedicated to astounding our customers. We are thrilled to bring employees from the Fayetteville area into the family business. This strategic location will bring more of our products to our dealer partners in the fast-growing southern U.S. We owe a special thank you to Governor Lee, and the city, county and state economic development folks who have been incredible to work with. Tennessee’s people are nothing short of amazing.”
“The City of Fayetteville is excited to welcome Dan Ariens and AriensCo to our community,” says Fayetteville Mayor Michael Whisenant. “The joint industrial development board has worked hard to fill the valuable production space in the Direct Coil building. AriensCo will provide a diverse product line not seen before in this area. We wish Mr. Ariens and his administrative team the best as they recruit our local talent to fill out their production jobs, and make not only Fayetteville but also Lincoln County their new home.”
