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.

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.
