25 Sep, 2014
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty along with Comprehensive Logistics Co., Inc. officials announced the company will locate a new automotive manufacturing support facility in Spring Hill that will house the manufacturing and light assembly of automotive components for the General Motors plant in Spring Hill.
The Ohio-based third-party logistics provider will invest $30 million and plans to create more than 200 new jobs.
“We want to welcome Comprehensive Logistics to Tennessee and congratulate the company on its latest expansion,” Haslam said. “Comprehensive Logistics’ decision to locate a new facility in Spring Hill is another example of the excellent logistics infrastructure and business-friendly environment our state offers to companies around the world. Today’s announcement brings us another step closer to our goal to make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“Tennessee consistently leads the national rankings for its distribution and logistics access making our state a standout choice for Comprehensive Logistics’ newest operation,” Hagerty said. “As a state, we strive to leverage Tennessee’s inherent advantages with the success of our thriving key sectors to create an environment that is appealing to new businesses seeking to relocate or expand operations. I appreciate Comprehensive Logistics for investing in Tennessee and for recognizing the strength of our superior workforce.”
“This contract award demonstrates Comprehensive Logistics’ history of successfully providing a complete logistics and value-added warehouse solution and exemplifies our expertise in helping General Motors to meet growing consumer demand for their vehicles,” Brad Constantini, executive vice president and principal of Comprehensive Logistics Co., Inc., said. “We are excited to open our first operation in Tennessee and become a part of the Spring Hill community.”
Comprehensive Logistics will build a new Class A industrial building on 13 acres at 715 Beechcroft Road in Spring Hill. Managing more than 4 million square feet of facility operating space in the United States and Canada, the company’s Spring Hill facility is slated to be complete in 2Q 2015.
“Having a major operation like Comprehensive Logistics locate a facility here is huge for Spring Hill,” Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham said. “It’s a perfect complement to Magna, it will make General Motors’ operations far more efficient and it will create more good paying jobs here at home, which will spawn more local economic growth. We are thrilled to see the terrific results of what has been a successful economic development effort.”
“I am very pleased to welcome Comprehensive Logistics to Maury County,” Maury County Mayor Charlie Norman said. “We are excited about the number of new jobs being created.
In addition, the significant investment the company is making in our community will certainly help move Maury County forward.”
