Lebanon, Tennessee based Nashville Box, LLC reported that it will invest $3.3 million to establish new operations in Wilson County. Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe have confirmed the announcement.
According to a press release, “Nashville Box will be utilizing an integrated business and manufacturing approach to service businesses with high volume corrugated packaging needs at both a regional and national level.” The corrugated box manufacturer will create 48 new jobs in Lebanon.
In recent years, the growth of e-commerce and the Tennessee economy have taken corrugated packaging demand to a generational high, and thus, creating a demand surplus. By locating operations just outside of Nashville in Lebanon, Nashville Box will have a strategic advantage to service both Tennessee’s business growth and many major markets within a day’s drive of Nashville.
“Tennessee’s geographic location is a major advantage when it comes to connecting to customers and suppliers quickly. Nashville Box’s decision to locate in Lebanon will help the company serve its regional market, while creating nearly 50 new jobs in Wilson County. I thank the company for choosing our state and look forward to seeing its success in Tennessee.” said Gov. Bill Lee.
“The Nashville Box team is thrilled to put roots down in the Nashville area,” said Scott Lawrence, President and CEO of Nashville Box. “Like most B2B manufacturing companies, we thrive on the health of our given business environment. The healthy, fast-growing business climate that Governor Lee and Commissioner Rolfe are creating is a driver for Nashville Box to immediately thrive. This provides a secure and exciting start for our 48 plus team members and their families.”
