Nashville – The Robinette Company officials announced today the company will invest $10.3 million to construct a new, 100,000-square-foot facility in Piney Flats, Tennessee. With a headquarters in Bristol and manufacturing operations in both Bristol and Piney Flats, the new facility will be The Robinette Company’s fourth location. Through this expansion, the company will create 70 new production jobs in Sullivan County.
The Robinette Company’s new production facility will house additional equipment to provide support for producing film-related products and accommodate growing business demands.
