Thompson Brown Inc. to celebrate grand opening

            GAINESBORO, Tenn. – The newest member of Jackson County’s industrial community, Thompson Brown Inc. (TBI), is opening their doors to the community for a grand opening celebration on Thursday, June 22.

            The Tennessee native company specializes in innovative electrical prefabrication assembly manufacturing which helps increase productivity in their clients’ major construction projects across the U.S.

TBI’s move to Gainesboro came after a search for a property that would fit their needs for expansion. The company, now located in the building previously occupied by Eaton Inc., plans to expand their operations to include 50 jobs over the next 5 years.

“The closing of Eaton was a difficult time for our community,” stated Jackson County Mayor James Kinnaird. We are pleased to welcome Thompson Brown Inc. into Jackson County.”

Michael Brown, President and Founder, stated, “We would like to extend the hospitality that Jackson County and the Town of Gainesboro have extended to us. We are proud to be a part of this community and look forward to building relationships with its citizens and businesses. We are truly humbled by the warm welcome and cooperation we have received thus far.”

The company is focused on being involved in the region and is already working to expand their business and supply chain to include existing companies in neighboring communities.  TBI plans to be highly involved in community development and will be a great asset to Gainesboro and Jackson County.

The community is invited to attend the grand opening celebration scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 22 at 1107 N. Grundy Quarles Hwy, Gainesboro, Tenn. Refreshments and tours of the facility will be provided.
