MAHLE will expand its operations in Murfreesboro by adding approximately 300 jobs. The majority of the new business for Murfreesboro will be reallocated from other MAHLE locations, state officials said Wednesday.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD) Commissioner Bob Rolfe made the announcement.
MAHLE, a leading international automotive supplier based in Stuttgart, Germany, will add 140,000 square feet to its operations at 906 Butler Drive in Murfreesboro, the ECD said. The expansion will support new injection molding production on site. The addition will allow the company to better optimize its production footprint and be closer to automotive customers in the Southeast.
MAHLE supplies automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and other Tier 1 auto suppliers throughout North America. The company’s portfolio addresses all crucial issues of powertrain and air conditioning technology — both for drives with combustion engines and for e-mobility.
Since 2015, ECD has supported nearly 30 economic development projects in Rutherford County, accounting for more than 3,800 job commitments and $1 billion in capital investment.
