AdTech Ceramics, which designs and makes custom electronic components for the military, medical and other business sectors, is growing its Chattanooga facility.
The high-tech company, located at 511 Manufacturers Road, will invest $2.25 million and create 25 more manufacturing jobs, said AdTech President Bill Minehan.
Minehan said the company currently employs "well over 100 people" at the plant.
"We're continuing to invest in both capacity and capability to meet customer demands and expectations," he said, adding the new hiring will be done over the next couple of years.
Minehan said the company is using the state's FastTrack Job Training Assistance Program to help with its personnel needs.
"That's an important part of expanding any business," he said.
Bill Hagerty, commissioner of the state Department of Economic and Community Development, cited the AdTech Ceramics growth as part of Gov. Bill Haslam's effort to spur companies to produce high-quality jobs.
"I look forward to working with them on future expansion projects," Hagerty said in a statement.
Minehan said the company currently is in the process of hiring a facilities manager, whose responsibilities will include building and manufacturing efficiency. Also, the company is looking at hiring a finishing process engineer, he said.
Interested candidates should submit applications and resumes to pam.mcelroy@adtech ceramics.com or fax to 423-755-5438, attention Human Resources, according to the company.
"We've been investing in our plant and infrastructure," he said. "It's something we continue to do."
