Bringing jobs, New Jersey-based company expanding operations into Hardin County

Aero Manufacturing CEO Wayne Phillips speaks during the formal announcement of the company’s expansion into Hardin County.

A New Jersey-based company is planning to bring more than 60 new jobs to Hardin County, officials announced Thursday.
Aero Millwork, a division of Aero Manufacturing, will manufacture food service equipment in laminate, stone, glass and millwork. The site near the Savannah-Hardin County Airport will be the company’s first manufacturing facility in Tennessee, according to a news release.
The project reportedly represents an investment of $890,000.
Headquartered in Clifton, New Jersey, Aero Manufacturing has been in the business of making stainless-steel food service equipment for over 75 years. The company specializes in producing stainless-steel sinks, tables, cabinets and shelving for a variety of industries.
During the 30 minute announcement event in the approximately 30,000 square foot warehouse housing Aero Millwork’s operations, Savannah Mayor Bob Shutt and Hardin County Mayor Kevin Davis expressed gratitude to the company for bringing jobs and new opportunities to the area.
Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said, “We are honored that Aero Millwork will make its new home in Hardin County. Supporting Tennessee’s at-risk and distressed counties is a major priority for our department.”
Wayne Phillips, Aero Manufacturing president and CEO, said the company needed a quality manufacturer of custom counters and decided to create the new division– Aero Millwork.
The company narrowed its search to southwest Tennessee and with the help of local officials, “found Savannah to be the best location for our second manufacturing facility. We look forward to hiring the best people in the business,” Phillips said.
