Greenworks Commercial announced plans for a new manufacturing, research and development, product testing, and customer experience center in Morristown, Tenn. The $20 million initial investment will create hundreds of new jobs for the area beginning next year.
The Greenworks Commercial Center of Excellence will include a 181,000-square-foot manufacturing facility producing commercial ride-on vehicles and mowers and technologically advanced commercial-grade batteries. The campus will also include a 20,000-square-foot customer experience center located on 30 acres of green space, which will be utilized for dealer training and events as well as product development and testing.
“Greenworks is proud to have led battery-powered innovation for years, and this new facility will allow us to continue to lead the industry in creating the best, most durable and most eco-friendly commercial power equipment in the world,” said Tony Marchese, Greenworks Commercial vice president of sales and operations. “We’re excited to make this investment in U.S. manufacturing, ushering Greenworks Commercial into a new era.”
The Greenworks Commercial factory is expected to open in early spring of 2022 and is set to welcome more than 200 new employees.
