Taiwanese metal composite material manufacturer to establish first U.S. facility in Tennessee, invest $45 million in Mt. Pleasant

Nashville – Xxentria Technology Materials Co., LTD. (Xxentria) officials announced today the company will invest $45 million to establish its first U.S. metal composite production facility in Mt. Pleasant.

Xxentria will create 85 new jobs at the Cherry Glen Industrial Park in Maury County. 

“Global brands continue choosing to invest in Tennessee thanks to our low cost of doing business, highly skilled workforce and central location. I thank Xxentria for selecting the Volunteer State as home to its first U.S. location and believe these 85 new jobs will positively impact families across Maury County for years to come,” said Gov. Bill Lee.

Based in Taiwan, Xxentria is a leading manufacturer of metal composite material. The Tennessee location will serve the automotive industry with the composite panels used to manufacture truck and trailer bodies. 

“The State of Tennessee has a pro-business climate and is aggressively attracting international manufacturing companies like ours. Establishing a manufacturing operation in Tennessee will allow us to better collaborate and serve our valued customers throughout North America while demonstrating that Taiwanese innovation has a home in the southeastern U.S.,” said Howard Cheng, CEO, Xxentria Technology Materials Co., Ltd.

Xxentria’s expansion to Tennessee results from years of research to locate a manufacturing facility in closer proximity to Xxentria’s U.S. customer base. The Mt. Pleasant plant will house equipment capable of two lines for lamination and one line for fabrication.
