Republican Lawmakers Continue To Support Statewide Job Growth

This week, House Republicans joined with the Administration and our Department of Economic and Community Development to announce new jobs are on their way to several communities in the Volunteer State.

Republican leaders joined with JNJ Express to announce an $83.6 million to expand its operations in Memphis. According to JNJ Express officials, they will redevelop and occupy the former retail site at 5000 American Way. The company’s new campus will consolidate its headquarters and include human relations, accounting, information technology, marketing and other corporate functions. JNJ will also construct a second building for its operations division, which will include distribution, maintenance and transportation functions.

JNJ currently has 290 employees in the Memphis area. The family owned and operated company specializes in transportation and logistics services.

On Wednesday, the ICEE Company announced it will establish its headquarters in La Vergne and create approximately 200 jobs in Rutherford County over the next five years.

Founded in 1967, The ICEE Company is the leader and innovator in the frozen beverage industry, offering the most comprehensive frozen beverage package and service network in the beverage and foodservice categories.

Because of our low taxes, and business-friendly environment, Tennessee continues to attract new business, and our state remains the best place in the entire nation to live, work, and raise a family.
