Jagemann Precision Plastics is expanding its Murfreesboro, Tenn., plant to meet rising demand for insert-molded parts.
A spokeswoman said automotive markets are the main driver of the project.
“This addition is very strategic to Jagemann, as it will allow further growth and capability as to precision insert- and over-molding stamping, fineblanking and assembly,” noted Jagemann Precision CEO Tom Jagemann in a news release.
Jagemann Precision plans to build a 30,000-square-foot addition and equip it with new, modern machinery, the company announced. Up to 90 jobs will be added. A local report stated the operation now employs 20. Jagemann Precision would not provide cost or other details of the expansion.
The Murfreesboro project follows a recent expansion by its parent company, Jagemann Stamping Co., that added 50,000 square feet and boosted its staff count by 130 at the headquarters in Manitowoc, Wis. Jagemann Precision specializes in insert injection molding for auto, appliance, solar and medical markets. Jagemann Stamping, a family owned company founded in 1946, is a major in deep-drawn, progressive and fine-blanking metal stampings.
Governments and the Tennessee Valley Authority plan to support the expansion. The project could qualify for local assistance and is scheduled to be discussed by the Rutherford County Industrial Board on Feb. 25. The assistance would include funds for training. Pay rates for the operation range from $40,000 to $70,000 annually, according to a local report.
