(Jackson, Tennessee) Carlisle Tire and Wheel, a subsidiary of Carlisle Companies, will open a plant here to make tires, inner tubes and wheels for a variety of vehicles used in the agricultural, all-terrain vehicle, golf, industrial, lawn/garden and trailer markets. The project represents a multi-million dollar investment by Carlisle Tire and Wheel and should create about 440 jobs.
A deal to acquire a facility is expected to close in late September.
Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Matt Kisber made the announcement. Carlisle Companies is based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Jackson, Tennessee facility affords CTW an ideal location for our new facility, more centralized to our markets with excellent expansion opportunities, said Carlisle Tire and Wheel President Fred Sutter.
Carlisle Tire and Wheel began in 1917 as a manufacturer of automotive tire inner tubes. The company survived the Great Depression and World War II and experienced strong growth in the post war period through a diversification of its product lines. Because of its investment in Tennessee, the company will qualify for a variety of statutory incentives, including FastTrack Job Training Assistance, Industrial Machinery Tax Credits and Jobs Tax Credits.
