A Minnesota company which manufactures skid steer attachments, Virnig Manufacturing, will establish a new 62,000-square-foot facility in Bledsoe County, company and state officials announced Monday, November 1.
The family-owned company will invest $11.6 million as it expands its Midwest operations to Tennessee, creating around 74 new jobs in Bledsoe County. The facility is taking over the old Eclipse building on Allen P. Deakins Road.
