A closed glass plant is about to reopen, bringing more than 200 new jobs to Kingsport.
Governor Bill Haslam announced Tuesday morning that Heritage Glass plans to invest nearly $16 million to launch a manuracturing location in Kingsport.
Heritage Glass plans to hire 120 employees within ten weeks of opening, and reach 237 employees at the facility within three years.
The company anticipates production at their Kingsport facility will begin in early July 2014. It will be located in a former glass factory that has been closed for some time.
Heritage Glass will service, repair, and modify existing equipment at the facility to manufacture patterned glass to be shipped worldwide.
The company's patterned glass is used for shower doors, solar panels, dividers and privacy applications such as bathrooms, doors, sidelights, conference rooms and churches.
