Eagle Bend Manufacturing
Eagle Bend Manufacturing has been a success story in its homebase of Tennessee’s Anderson County since it opened in 1987. The Clinton, Tenn.-based automotive parts manufacturer has created hundreds of jobs for its surrounding community and, along with other manufacturers in the region, been a key part of the county’s economy.
Eagle Bend’s contributions to the city and county will grow even more during the next five years. A $64 million expansion plan launched in 2012 will add 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space to the 334,000-square-foot facility. The expansion will add new production lines including a laser hot stamping line and create 188 new jobs. These new jobs will include assembly, laser and press operator and maintenance positions.
