Automotive Industrial Park Expansion

The Economic Development Administration (EDA) is expanding an automotive industrial park expansion in Hamilton County, Tennessee. This $3,000,000 grant through the Department of Commerce will upgrade and expand the capacity of the rail system at the Enterprise South Industrial Park in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to serve the new North American production facility for a major automotive group. Grantees estimate that the initial automotive production facility will eventually generate private investment of $1 billion. This project has already created 7 jobs and is expected to be completed in the 3rd quarter of FY 2012.
