Pace Industries, LLC officials recently announced that the company will invest $2.8 million in Jackson to expand manufacturing operations at its Lower Brownsville Road facility.
First founded in Arkansas in 1970, Pace Industries is a full-service aluminum, zinc and magnesium die casting manufacturer serving businesses in the U.S. and Mexico. The company offers die casting services to a range of industries and markets including automotive, commercial vehicle, powersports, lighting, lawn and garden, appliance, aerospace, defense, medical, and more.
“Pace Industries has always believed that the greatest asset a company has is its employees, and through this expansion, we hope to sustain permanent growth and the financial independence of our employees while raising the quality of life experienced in Jackson,” Jerry Peterson, General Manager of Pace Industries said in a statement. “Thank you to everyone that worked together to make this project a reality. We look forward to continuing our future here in West Tennessee.”
The company was founded in 1970 and is headquartered in Novi, Michigan.
Pace Industries’ current 140,000 square foot facility in Jackson was originally acquired by the company in 2021 and employs over 100 associates.
The company’s new expansion project is expected to create 49 new jobs in Madison County, bringing the total number of jobs at the facility to nearly 150, according to a press release by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD).
“Pace Industries’ decision to invest in Tennessee is a testament to our state’s highly skilled workforce and unmatched business climate,” Governor Bill Lee stated. “I thank this company for creating nearly 50 new job opportunities for Tennesseans across Jackson and look forward to seeing the prosperity that follows this expansion.”
The expansion project will allow Pace Industries to “better serve its growing customer demand for aluminum, zinc and magnesium die casting,” TNECD notes.
