New Wilson County facility to create 245 jobs

MT. JULIET, Tenn. (AP) – A company that specializes in manufacturing machine parts is establishing a new facility in Wilson County that’s expected to create 245 jobs.

DE-STA-CO specializes in the innovation, design and manufacture of clamping and robotic tooling solutions for workholding and automation needs.

Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd announced this week that the company will consolidate several of its U.S. manufacturing operations by locating a new facility in Mt. Juliet.

The consolidation process will be completed in multiple phases over the next 18 to 24 months.

Company president Mats Ceder says the consolidation will achieve a number of customer service, innovation and efficiency goals that should position the company for further growth.
