The Minth Group is expanding its Lewisburg, Tennessee plant, creating 254 new jobs and investing $87 million over the next five years.
China-based Minth will construct an additional 236,000-square-foot facility on the company’s Lewisburg property for production of injection-molded, painted and chrome-plated plastic parts for automotive OEMs.
The Marshall County facility is expected to be complete by 2021.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our operations in Lewisburg. This will allow us to better serve our customers and support local communities,” said Minth Regional General Manager Natalie Chin.
Minth Tennessee International serves as the group’s U.S. base. Minth makes trim parts, decorative parts, body structural parts, seat frame systems, roof racks and other parts, such as electric sliding door systems, exhaust pipes, bumper beams, electric door locks and more.
“Tennessee’s automotive industry continues to see major growth. Tennessee is home to four OEMs, which makes it a perfect location for an automotive supplier like Minth to succeed,” said Tennessee Governor Bill Lee.
The company originally announced its Lewisburg facility in mid-2017, so this latest expansion comes a little over a year and a half later.
The Minth Group has 40 production plants worldwide that support automotive markets in 29 different countries. The company supplies many world-renowned international automakers and together, Minth customers represent 80 percent of the total global auto market share.
