Spectrum Lubricants has announced plans to expand its Selmer facility. The expansion represents a $1.8 million investment and will create 26 new full-time jobs in McNairy County, according to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.
“We’re grateful for Spectrum Lubricants’ continued confidence and investment in our state,” assistant commissioner Allen Borden said. “Gov. Haslam’s leadership has continued to further Tennessee’s reputation as a business-friendly location for companies to build and grow in, and this decision by Spectrum Lubricants underscores that reputation.”
Spectrum Lubricants is an independent blender, compounder, packager and marketer of specialty lubricants, including two-cycle engine oil, bar and chain oil, small engine oil and hydraulic oil.
The company serves the outdoor power equipment, lawn and garden and agricultural markets, and the marine and automotive aftermarkets.
The company’s Selmer facility is located at 500 Industrial Park Drive. The announced 26 jobs will be added to the company’s existing Selmer workforce of about 200.
