General Machine and Tool Company to nearly double Elizabethton workforce
General Machine and Tool Company, Inc., officials announced the company will invest $3.7 million to expand manufacturing operations at its headquarters in Elizabethton. The expansion follows the company’s acquisition by Cinco Research Corporation in February and will result in the creation of 25 new jobs, nearly doubling the facility's workforce. The acquisition will also give General Machine the ability to expand and update its equipment inventory and manufacturing capabilities to reach a larger customer base across the Southeast. Founded and headquartered in Elizabethton, General Machine and Tool is a premier full-service machine part manufacturer and distributor of one-off parts. The company, which primarily serves the Tri-Cities region, has been operating from its Northeast Tennessee facility since 1967.
