M&M Industries has announced a major expansion of its operations in Chattanooga, TN. The solutions packaging manufacturer will invest more than $42 million and create 110 jobs in Hamilton County.

Chattanooga“All of us within M&M are very excited for the future of this new facility, as well as our expansion at our current facility in Chattanooga,” said Glenn Morris, president and CEO of M&M Industries. “We are excited about our new neighbors and our future employees. We see a bright future for M&M in this location.”

Headquartered in Chattanooga, M&M will purchase and retrofit a building at 1435 E. 14th Street and expand its current manufacturing facility at 316 Corporate Place to suit its expansion needs. The expansions will provide additional capacity to support growing demand across M&M’s product lines.

“We’ve worked hard to make Tennessee a state where existing businesses can thrive,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “It’s always encouraging when an existing employer like M&M creates new jobs and makes a significant investment in Tennessee. I’d like to thank M&M for expanding in Chattanooga and bringing us one step closer to making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

ChattanoogaM&M manufactures plastic pails, plastic open head containers and custom packaging for the chemical, pharmaceutical, health care, construction materials and other industries.

“Expansions by existing businesses are the primary driver of Tennessee’s economic growth,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “M&M’s commitment to create more than 100 new jobs in Chattanooga is welcome news and reflects the confidence homegrown businesses have in Tennessee’s workforce and business climate. Thank you, M&M, for the continued commitment to Hamilton County and this significant investment in Southeast Tennessee.”
