Hardcoat Technologies to expand in Knoxville
HardcoatTechnologies LLC will invest $6.6 million to expand operations at its Papermill Drive location in Knoxville, creating 85 new jobs. The company will locate additional operations adjacent to its headquarters and original injection molding plant. As part of this project, Hardcoat Technologies will acquire an existing building and construct a new 23,500-square-foot facility on Papermill Drive. Both operations will support the company’s recent contract with SL Tennessee and, upon completion, will more than double Hardcoat Technologies’ injection molding, warehousing and assembly capabilities. Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, Hardcoat Technologies specializes in injection molding and hardcoating for the automotive, ATV and industrial markets. Through this project, Hardcoat Technologies will employ more than 130 people in Tennessee.
