Manufacturing Plant Flees California to Right to Work Tennessee

by

Master Manufacturing Group (MMG) will invest $3.9 million to renovate and upgrade an existing manufacturing Dayton, Tennessee facility. More current California employers are expected to head East towards Right to Work states.

Founded in 1956, Master Manufacturing Group, formerly known as Woodmack Products, Inc., provides custom tube and pipe manufacturing services, specializing in the gas appliance industry. The company offers aluminum, stainless steel and steel tubing components in various shapes, sizes and forms.

Since 2015, TNECD has supported 90 economic development projects in Southeast Tennessee, resulting in more than 12,500 job commitments and approximately $3.8 billion in capital investment.

Governor Bill Lee said, “What happens in rural Tennessee affects every Tennessean, and so we’re excited by this investment from Master Manufacturing Group to bring more jobs and growth to Rhea County. I appreciate MMG for choosing to do business in our state, and I look forward to the many ways this new operation will spark economic activity in Southeast Tennessee.”
