East Tennessee auto supplier creates 1,000 jobs

Auto parts supplier SL Tennessee LLC officials said today the company will invest $80.5 million in Clinton, Tenn., outside Knoxville and create 1,000 new jobs.

Located in Clinton since 2001, this will be the company’s fifth expansion. SL Tennessee was an early supplier to Chattanooga’s Volkswagen assembly plant.

SL Tennessee will begin construction in August 2014 with a goal of being fully operational by April 2015.

“I want to congratulate SL Tennessee on its latest expansion and thank the company for the 1,000 new jobs created in Clinton,” Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said. “SL Tennessee has been an outstanding corporate citizen in Anderson County for nearly 15 years, and we are grateful to the company for bringing us one step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
