Rockford Spring Company, which manufactures custom precision springs and wire forms for the OPE industry and other markets, will establish new manufacturing operations in Lewisburg, Tennessee, the company has announced. Rockford Spring, based in Illinois, will invest $10.3 million and create more than 60 new jobs in Marshall County as the company locates in an existing facility at 1100 Garrett Parkway.
By establishing a presence in Tennessee, the company reports that it will utilize the Lewisburg facility to serve its existing markets while also expanding its customer base in the southeastern United States.
“The Banas family purchased Rockford Spring in 2007 and has been growing the 70-year-old company for the last 15 years,” says Dave Lester, Rockford Spring’s vice president. “We would like to thank the state of Tennessee, local economic development team, Marshall County and TVA along with local contractors who have all assisted in bringing Rockford Spring to Lewisburg. We are thrilled to open our new division and welcome new employment opportunities enhancing growth and continuing the positive culture we thrive to achieve. Rockford Spring looks forward to becoming a productive part of Lewisburg and striving to take on a supportive role in the community.”
“We are excited to welcome Rockford Spring into the Lewisburg manufacturing family. Rockford Spring has not only renovated and upgraded one of our existing manufacturing facilities, but the company will also expand our industrial diversity into the automotive, agriculture, firearm and outdoor power equipment sectors,” says Lewisburg Mayor Jim Bingham.
