New industry moving forward on construction
WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News Staff
MADISON COUNTY, Tenn.-Construction is underway as officials have now broken ground on a new manufacturing facility that will bring almost 200 new jobs to Jackson and Madison County.
Japanese auto parts maker Pacific Industries is building a 60 acre plant on farmland donated by the county. The plant's original plan was unveiled back in June.
Governor Bill Haslam was at the groundbreaking and said it was possible because of teamwork within the state.
Pacific Industries expects to be fully operational next spring.
