Gov. Bill Lee announces new Hydro-Gear facility in Carroll County
HUNTINGDON, Tenn. — A new economic manufacturing facility is opening up in Carroll County.
The Huntingdon community, as well as city officials, gathered at the Dixie Performing Arts Center, where Gov. Bill Lee announced a new Hydro-Gear facility to be placed in the community.
Hydro-Gear selected Huntingdon for its fourth U.S. location, where it will create more than 300 new jobs.
Gov. Lee says this economic investment will bring a profound impact on northwest Tennessee.
“He and his team at Hydro-Gear has made a decision to bring 375 new jobs and $10 million worth of investment into this county,” Gov. Lee said.
Hydro-Gear was founded as a joint venture, with the initial focus of producing transmissions for outdoor power equipment manufacturers.
