Steel parts maker TAG Manufacturing expanding, hiring 200

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) – A $15 million expansion at TAG Manufacturing is expected to add 200 jobs with the maker of assembled steel parts for construction.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that the company owned by brothers Terry and Gary Wilt is expanding to a nearly 19-acre lot across from its existing plant.

The facility is located in Enterprise South Industrial Park, which is also home to Volkswagen and Amazon.

Gary Wilt says the 200,000-square-foot expansion will help the company keep up with orders and land new customers.

TAG, which also designs and makes heavy equipment and ground engaging tools, employs about 300 people.

Construction is scheduled to begin this summer.
