Adient to Grow Presence in Tennessee with Creation of 200 Jobs

Michigan automotive parts manufacturer Adient is creating up to 200 jobs in Henderson County, Tennessee as part of the company’s $10.8 million manufacturing investment in its Lexington facility.

“More than 134,000 Tennesseans work in Tennessee’s robust automotive sector and it is encouraging to see Adient create hundreds of automotive jobs in Lexington,” Gov. Bill Haslam said.

“Adient’s investment is further proof that Tennessee will lead the nation in high-quality job opportunities for residents in our rural communities.”

Adient plans to upgrade its Henderson County facility, install assembly equipment and expand lines of production.

“This is wonderful news for our county,” Henderson County Mayor Dan Hughes said.

“We will supply a good workforce and strive to meet Adient’s needs. This announcement today is music to the ears of people ready to go to work.” 

“This will have a significant economic impact for not only Lexington but also Henderson County,” Lexington Mayor Jeff Griggs said.
