A new company broke ground in Morristown on Tuesday with the promise of 72 new jobs over the next five years.

McNeilus Steel is investing $18.8 million to build a 100,000 square foot facility in Morristown’s East Tennessee Progress Center. One of the things they will produce is armor material for military vehicles.

“McNeilus Steel’s decision to invest in Tennessee and create high-skill jobs reinforces our thriving business environment and growing skilled workforce. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this company will have on the residents of East Tennessee,” said Gov. Bill Lee.

The company expects the facility will be operational in the first quarter of 2020.
