Choate Engineering Performance is establishing new operations in Bolivar, Tennessee.
The company will invest $8 million to retrofit and make improvements to an existing 155,000-square-foot facility where the company will manufacture engines and components for the automotive industry.
“We are excited about the opportunity to grow Choate Engineering Performance in the city of Bolivar, Tennessee,” said Cass Choate, founder of Choate Engineering Performance. “The assistance of Mayor (Julian) McTizic of Bolivar and Chelsey Scott Wallace of TNECD (Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development) has been encouraging, and instrumental in our choice for this location.”
Hiring is currently underway, with the company expecting to create 100 jobs over the next five years.
“We are excited that Choate Engineering Performance has chosen Bolivar to be the home to its manufacturing operations,” McTizic said. “Choate’s selection of Bolivar is a testament to our favorable business climate. We thank Choate Engineering for their investment in our community and wish them continued success for many years to come.”
