Tomcat USA plans to open a manufacturing facility in Knoxville’s River Industrial Park, according to a recent news release from the state Department of Economic and Community Development. The announcement represents an investment of $2 million and the creation of 50 jobs.
“On behalf of Governor Haslam, I would like to welcome Tomcat USA to Tennessee,” state commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “The company’s decision to locate in Knox County is great for the region, and we appreciate their investment in our state.”
Tomcat USA is a member of the Milos Group and manufactures engineered structural trussing systems and distributes CM Chain Hoists primarily for use in the entertainment industry.
The Milos Group is the world’s largest manufacturer of aluminum truss with facilities in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Italy, China and now in Knoxville.
“I am looking forward to having the Tomcat facility located in Knoxville and to continue growing the business with the exceptional workforce we have in this area,” Tomcat USA president Mike Garl said. “I would also like to thank the Knoxville Chamber and the State of Tennessee for working with us in our site location efforts during the past 18 months. Their efforts have been tremendously helpful during this process.”
