TTI Floor Care North America, which bought Oreck Co. out of bankruptcy last summer, plans to expand Oreck's Cookeville, Tenn., plant and add 211 jobs over the next five years.

The plant expansion will double the local workforce by moving some production back to the United States from China and Mexico.

"The Cookeville facility provides us with a number of advantages including a skilled, tenured workforce and a central location for shipping to a majority of the U.S. quickly and efficiently," said Simon Lawson, president of TTI Floor Care North America.
