Century Mold Co. Inc. has announced plans to expand its Shelbyville facility with a $4.2 million investment and the creation of 48 manufacturing jobs.
“The automotive industry in Tennessee is steadily growing and thriving, and it’s exciting to see companies like Century Mold Co., Inc. prospering in our state.” state Commissioner of Economic and Community Development Bill Hagerty said.
Established in 1978 and headquartered in Rochester, N.Y., Century Mold Co. Inc. is primarily an injection molding supplier to the OEM automotive and heavy truck industry. The company’s automotive experience has translated into new markets of consumer products, emerging energy, military and office furniture industries.
By 1993, Century Mold Co. Inc. expanded its operation to Shelbyville, on the Blue Ribbon Parkway. The company now has five locations between the United States and Mexico.
“Shelbyville has been the perfect fit for Century’s Mold Co. Inc.’s manufacturing facility for nearly 20 years now,” Century Mold CEO Ron Ricotta said. “We thank state and local officials for making this expansion a reality and look forward to continual success in Bedford County.”
“This is exciting news for Bedford County,” Bedford County Mayor Eugene Ray said.
