East Tennessee company creating 228 jobs

Oddello Industries LLC expand operations at its Morristown, Tenn., facility and add 228 jobs, officials said today.

The company, that makes furniture components, will invest $4 million in the Hamblen County plant.

“With rising overseas costs of production, shipping and wage rates, Morristown is a logical fit for Oddello’s continued growth,” said Oddello Industries Chief Operating Officer Tom Roberts in a statement.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said that companies such as Oddello are “helping us toward our goal of becoming the No. 1 state in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

Morristown Mayor Danny Thomas said Oddello has grown from 35 employees to 415 in the past year.
