Schneider Electric to expand, add 455 jobs to Middle Tennessee, bring $85M investment

  • Schneider Electric plans to open new facility in Wilson County and expand an existing facility in Rutherford County.
  • Schneider Electric plans an $85 million investment.

An energy management and automation company plans to expand and add 455 new jobs in Wilson and Rutherford counties, according to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.

Schneider Electric will create 355 new jobs in Wilson County with the planned opening of a new facility on Maddox Road, according to the state. The company is also planning to expand its Smyrna location and create 100 new jobs there, the state said.

The total investment is estimated at $85 million.

It’s a “big win for our community,” Joint Economic & Community Development Board of Wilson County Executive Director Corey Johns said.

Schneider Electric is a global provider that has seen unprecedented growth in the energy sector, officials said.

The new facility on Maddox will be the company’s first in Wilson County and will be near the Couchville Pike exit and Interstate 840.

The company will be the first tenant in a building that includes about 500,000 square feet of space, Johns said.

The investment in Wilson and Rutherford counties is designed to strengthen production capacity and allow Schneider Electric to better meet customer demand for energy management and automation products.

The company will employ more than 1,900 Tennesseans across facilities in Franklin, Maryville, Memphis, Smyrna and Mt. Juliet once expansion plans are completed, officials noted.

“This project will not only boost the local manufacturing sector and provide job opportunities to more than 355 residents, but it will also strengthen the regional economy and support a more sustainable community for generations to come,” State Sen. Mark Pody said in a statement.
