The town of Bruceton is getting a new industry.
Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and ZLINE Kitchen and Bath officials announced the company will locate its new distribution headquarters in Bruceton. The kitchen range and hood manufacturer and distributor will create 74 new jobs and invest $3 million in Carroll County.
It will be located on Rowland Mill Road in what was formerly the Purity Food building. At one time the H.I.S. cutting department occupied the building.
“I want to thank ZLINE for creating more than 70 new jobs in Carroll County,” Rolfe said. “There are more than 16,000 Tennessee businesses in the transportation, distribution and logistics sector, and I appreciate ZLINE for choosing to locate its new distribution headquarters in Carroll County, a Tier-4 county, and for expanding this industry in Tennessee.”
Bruceton Mayor Robert T. Keeton III expressed his pleasure with the announcement that ZLINE would be locating within the town and adding to the economy.
The mayor said it had been a combined effort on the part of a number of entities that had culminated into a successful conclusion.
“On behalf of the Town of Bruceton, I want to welcome ZLINE and think they will be very pleased with their decision to locate here,” said the mayor. “I also want to thank the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, the Carroll County Industrial Development Board, and the Hollow Rock-Bruceton Special School District for partnering with the Town to make new jobs a reality for Bruceton, plus County Mayor Joseph Butler and former County Mayor Kenny McBride.”
Founded by Andy Zuro, ZLINE Kitchen and Bath is the industry leader in the manufacturing and distributing of range hoods and kitchen cooktops. ZLINE is a family-owned company with its corporate headquarters locations in Nevada and Ohio.
“ZLINE is incredibly proud to launch its new Bruceton facility. We have been thrilled with the level of support from the local community and the State of Tennessee. We are the industry-leader in range hoods, and our investment in this 205,000-square-foot facility affords us the opportunity to scale our operations in a way that we could only imagine previously,” ZLINE CMO Galen Bradford said. “We chose Tennessee because of its strategic location, exceptional quality of life, and the skilled labor pool. We eagerly look forward to making an influence on the Bruceton community by adding well-deserved, quality careers and creating a lasting, positive impact."
ZLINE’s new operations in Bruceton will function as its Southeast distribution hub and will be the company’s distribution headquarters.
“ZLINE Kitchen and Bath is the newest company to select Bruceton and Carroll County for its new operation,” Brad Hurley, Carro
ll County Chamber of Commerce president, said. “During the nine-month search process, we needed the assistance of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, along with numerous local agencies—Carroll County government, Town of Bruceton, Hollow Rock-Bruceton Special School District, Carroll County Highway Department—to come together to finalize this deal.”
