By mid January this site at Center South Riverport Park could be a state of the art manufacturing plant.
It comes after family owned business Chattanooga Tractor and Equipment Inc felt an expansion was needed.

Randy Topping, President, "A lot of things to consider, lot of permitting, some design things to work on but are target date is mid January, trying for full capacity, but am sure we will be operating at some capacity by mid January

Mahindra tractors are manufactured in ten countries and sold across four continents with demand growing and growing in the US.
Charles Wood, Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce,"Mahindra is a well known international brand, so that certainly helps, it kind of builds off of the international presence that we have already got, so I think that will add and Center South is a great location it's got a good bit of companies there already and it's got a few spots left for additional industry"

Randy Topping is grateful to the people of Chattanooga for helping put their business in a position to grow.

"This community has supported this business since 1971 when our father started this company as a retail Ford Tractor dealership, we have grown to these other brands and this community has supported us threw thick and thin so we are glad to give something back"

Southeast Mahindra USA confirmed the news through twitter earlier today and the facility will be located next to Univar USA.
