NASHVILLE—Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty along with Allied Modular Building Systems, Inc. officials today announced the company will expand its current operations in Goodlettsville by building an additional facility at 400 Oak Bluff Ln. The strategic addition will focus on creating Allied Modular’s wall and building systems and will serve the Midwest, South and Northeast parts of the country, as well as Eastern Canada. Through this expansion, Allied Modular Building Systems will invest $5.1 million and create 27 new jobs in Sumner County.
“Tennessee’s central location offers companies distinct advantages when it comes to distributing their unique products around the nation and the world,” Hagerty said. “I am pleased Allied Modular continues to thrive within our state’s business-friendly environment and leveraging our high quality workforce. I thank Allied Modular for their continued investment in Tennessee and the new jobs they will create for our communities.”
Allied Modular continues to be an industry leader in modern modular construction. Using factory controlled production methods and fast building techniques honed from over 25 years of experience, Allied Modular has helped companies around the world grow and expand their operations. Allied Modular specializes in creating modular panelized wall systems that are used for modular offices, wall partitions and guard houses, as well as industry specific products like dressing rooms, tanning salon walls and cleanrooms.
“We take pride in the fact that our company has seen continued growth each year,” Allied Modular Building Systems President Kevin Peithman said. “Even during our most recent recession, Allied Modular continued to grow and expand. We will continue to change the minds of people on how they look at construction and are excited for what the future holds for modular construction.”
Peithman added, “We are excited to expand our operations with a new production facility, and Tennessee has provided some unique opportunities not found in other parts of the country. The community here has welcomed us, and we are looking forward to hiring local Tennessee residents. We think that there is no better workforce in the world than right here at home in the U.S.A., and we want people to be proud of the company they work for, as well as the products they produce.”
“We are extremely excited that Allied Modular has chosen to call Goodlettsville home,” Goodlettsville City Manager Tim Ellis said. “Having top quality industry, such as they are, is another cornerstone to the quality of commercial growth in our city. We look forward to working with Allied Modular for years to come.”
