Denso Invests $190 Million in Tennessee Manufacturing Hub

February 28, 2018

Denso has invested $190 million in its Athens, Tennessee, facility to expand the supplier’s operations in North America.

The investment will add four new production lines and 320 jobs, according to Denso, increasing its ability to produce and deliver key parts to customers. This is the latest strategic investment in the North American market by Denso and part of its commitment to make Tennessee a primary manufacturing center.

The company announced a $1 billion investment in its Maryville, Tennessee, facility last September to expand operations focused on electrification and safety systems.

“Increasing our capacity to manufacture products closer to customers in North America will continue to power Denso’s growth in the region,” said Hugh Cantrell, director of administrative services for Denso Manufacturing in Athens. “This investment strengthens one of our key production centers. Athens has played a major role producing and supplying our customers with key components in fuel delivery, ignition, and exhaust gas systems.”
