Lock Joint Tube/Steel Warehouse of Tennessee, a subsidiary of Lerman Enterprises, will undergo a $2 million dollar expansion that will bring new jobs to the area, increase the company's customer base and allow it to better meet the demands of the market it currently serves, officials said today.

The company is expected to purchase an additional 1.7 acres in Hamilton County's Centre South Riverport to accommodate the addition of 50,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

The expansion is expected to create an additional six jobs at the plant. The company now employs over 200.
