Reusable packaging manufacturer to create 25 jobs
NASHVILLE— Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd along with Bradford Company officials announced today the company will invest $5.1 million over the next five years to expand operations at its Gallatin Facility. The reusable packaging manufacturer will create 25 jobs in Sumner County.
“I want to thank Bradford Company for choosing to expand its operations in Gallatin,” Boyd said. “Over 300,000 Tennesseans are employed in manufacturing and it is exciting to have a company like Bradford strengthening the Team Tennessee workforce by creating these valuable jobs for our state.”
Bradford Company is a fifth generation, family and employee-owned business and has been in Gallatin since 1991. With this expansion, the company plans to expand its capacity as well as consolidate all of its Gallatin facilities into one.
The company specializes in manufacturing reusable/recyclable containers primarily for the automotive industry. Bradford Company’s products are free from pollutants and chemicals which provides a safe, hazardous free work environment for its employees.
