P&G Duracell will expand its battery manufacturing and packaging facilities in Cleveland, Tenn., officials said today.

The expansion will create 60 jobs and represents a $36 million investment by P&G Duracell, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-performance alkaline batteries.

“Existing Tennessee industries are an integral part of the communities they call home, and I would like to thank P&G Duracell for reaffirming its commitment to the citizens of Bradley County,” state Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said in a press release. “Expansion decisions are only made after careful and thoughtful consideration, and this announcement shows a tremendous vote of confidence in the area’s quality workforce and the state’s favorable business climate.”

The Cleveland manufacturing facility is one of only three P&G Duracell plants in the U.S. and will be the sole producer of C- and D-cell batteries for the Duracell brand.
