Some of the world’s most recognizable brands call Tennessee home. Shouldn’t you? Tennessee is a game changer in the business world. We’re your headquarters for data centers, call centers, corporate innovation, research and development, and new technologies.

A move to Tennessee allows your business to take advantage of our central location, tap into our highly qualified workforce in a right-to-work state, benefit from a low tax burden and collaborate with a business-friendly administration.

The advantages of doing business in Tennessee don’t stop there. We invest approximately $4.3 billion annually in R&D. A center of science and technology since the 1940s, Tennessee supports R&D in small businesses, large corporations and several internationally recognized research institutions, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Vanderbilt University, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), U.S. Airforce Arnold Engineering Development Complex and the University of Tennessee.

Because of that commitment, Tennessee is home to R&D facilities that provide world-changing technologies to businesses, communities and individuals everywhere.

We have attracted some of the world’s biggest brands to our state. Among those headquartered in Tennessee include FedEx, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), International Paper, Dollar General, Community Health Systems, Unum, AutoZone, Eastman Chemical Company, Nissan North America, Bridgestone, ServiceMaster, Tractor Supply Company and Regal Entertainment Group, just to name a few.

With the help of TVA, 13 available primary data center site locations have been identified across Tennessee. Currently, there are more than 8,100 (8,183) Tennesseans working in this sector at 296 establishments in the state.

More than 13,384 Tennesseans work in nearly 259 telephone call centers across the state, with major operations from Asurion, Convergys, Verizon and TRG Customer Solutions. R&D drives Tennessee’s economy and provides the groundwork for continued innovation and discovery. Let Tennessee’s smart business solutions and skilled workforce become your advantage.
