KPS Global recently completed a renovation and expansion of its Piney Flats, TN facility. The company has invested more than $1 million in the Tennessee facility, which increased in size by over 70,000 square feet and press capacity by 50%. The additional square footage positions KPS Global to meet customer demand and ultimately reinforces our access to customers on the East Coast. The Industrial Park Road location has multiple manufacturing lines that create insulated panel systems for use in various applications – from retail food displays to climate controlled scientific chambers – each designed and manufactured to customer specifications. KPS Global also offers a wide variety of aftermarket parts and replacement doors as well as installation services.
“Given the strategic location of the Piney Flats facility in relation to our two other manufacturing facilities, it was natural to invest in the facility. The additional space gives us the capacity to meet growing demand,” noted Jack Bowling, CEO of KPS Global. “With the support of D Cubed Group, we’ve been able to invest in our people and facilities. This project serves as an important part of our growth strategy.” Bowling said.
“It’s gratifying to see how quickly this expansion happened and I thank and congratulate Rick and the KPS Global team on remaining operational throughout the construction,” Sullivan County Mayor Richard Venable said. “Nothing makes a stronger statement about our county as a desirable business location than outstanding companies like KPS Global reinvesting here. It was a pleasure for the county to work with NETWORKS, TNECD, TVA, and, of course, the local and corporate leadership of KPS Global. We look forward to seeing them continue to grow here where Tennessee begins its business day.”
The company held a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the project on May 18th, 2017. Along with the KPS Global executive team, members from the Economic Development team and City were also present.
“I am happy to see that KPS Global’s facility expansion in Sullivan County is officially completed,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “In December 2016, KPS Global announced plans to expand in Piney Flats and create 64 new jobs and it is exciting that the company has finished its project and will continue to succeed in Tennessee and in Sullivan County.” KPS Global Completes Expansion of Manufacturing Facility in Piney Flats, TN
