East Tennessee company adding 237 jobs

Heritage Glass officials today announced the company will invest $15.8 million to begin new manufacturing in Kingsport, Tenn., and create 237 jobs.

Heritage Glass plans to service, repair and modify existing equipment at a facility to manufacture patterned glass to be shipped worldwide. Patterned glass is used for shower doors, solar panels, dividers and privacy applications such as bathrooms, doors, sidelights, conference rooms and churches.

“The manufacturing sector is a critical part of the state’s strong economy, and this announcement helps us toward our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs,” said Gov. Bill Haslam in a statement.

Bill Hagerty, the state’s economic and community development commissioner, said the state is creating “the kind of business-friendly environment where companies like Heritage Glass feel confident in investing capital and beginning a new business venture.”
