As construction continues at Fuel Total Systems’ new $60.9 million manufacturing plant in Mt. Pleasant, the maker of fuel tanks for the automotive industry says it plans to begin production at the facility this December and is now looking for local employees.

The more than 100,000 square foot new site located at Cherry Glen Industrial Park in Mt. Pleasant will serve as a base of operations for the Japanese auto components maker, supplying a new Toyota/Mazda plant in Huntsville, Alabama which is planned to begin production in 2021. FTS was the first Tennessee-based supplier for the new Alabama plant, about a 90-minute drive away.

The $60.9 million dollar manufacturing facility marks the largest addition to the Maury County-owned industrial complex, which broke ground on its first 50,000 square foot speculative facility in August of 2016.

The international manufacturer hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at the Mt. Pleasant site on Halloween last year.

“We are very excited to be locating our newest FTS facility in Mt. Pleasant,” said Hiroyuki Ochiai, president of FTS Co., Ltd. “We would like to thank the state of Tennessee, Mt. Pleasant and Maury County officials, as well as community members for all the support we have received throughout this process. Our mission is to create a safe workplace for our employees, to be a good corporate citizen in this community and to grow together with the people of Mt. Pleasant and Maury County.”
