“When companies choose to invest in Tennessee, it’s a testament to our strong business climate and highly skilled workforce. I thank Ventcon for its decision to establish operations in Madison County and create 75 new manufacturing jobs so that Tennesseans across the region can thrive,” Tennessee Governor Bill Lee said in a statement.
According to the company’s website, Ventcon “is an industry leading HVAC Sheet Metal Mechanical Contractor.” The company has a strong background working with well-known businesses and institutions such as the University of Michigan, General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler, and Pfizer, TNECD further notes.
The company’s new facility will be located at 130 Beasley St. in Jackson, Tennessee, which will position the HVAC duct fabricator to be geographically closer to two of its sizable, contracted projects with Ford Motor Company, according to TNECD. Ventcon’s opportunities with Ford’s Blue Oval City in Haywood County and BlueOvalSK Battery Park in central Kentucky have allowed the company to expand outside of its hub in Michigan, offering a permanent location for the company to expand its business partnerships.
“What an exciting opportunity for the State of Tennessee. Ventcon is honored to be part of the vision for the Blue Oval City project and, with hard work, to be establishing our Ventcon operation in Jackson, Tennessee,” Ventcon, Inc. President Todd Hill said in a statement. “We look forward to becoming part of the community now and in the future.”
