German-based HÜBNER Group plans to build new factory in Tennessee

Manufacturer to invest $9.6 million, create 66 new jobs

DUNLAP, Tenn. (March 6, 2019) – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Hubner Manufacturing Corporation officials announced today that the company will invest $9.6 million to establish a new manufacturing facility in Dunlap.


Hubner, a subsidiary of Germany-based Hubner Group, plans to create 66 jobs in Sequatchie County over the next five years. The company manufactures a wide range of products for the transportation and energy sectors.

“We’re so glad to have Hubner choose Tennessee as a place to do business. Tennessee is a great place to live and work, and we’re glad to have them here,” Lee said. “Hubner’s commitment to create dozens of quality jobs for the residents of Dunlap and Sequatchie County is a great thing for the area.”

“We appreciate Hubner’s commitment to invest in Sequatchie County and bring stable, family-wage jobs to Dunlap,” Rolfe said. “Hubner has a strong track record in the communities where it operates, and we look forward to the ways it will support and grow the local economy in Dunlap.”

Hubner will build a 36,000-square-foot building on Tram Trail in the Dunlap Industrial Park. Construction of the new facility will begin in the second quarter of 2019. Hubner will produce extruded and molded rubber parts, gaskets, and seals for the transportation, oil and gas, and aerospace industries. Window systems, handicap lifts & ramps, and possibly gangways systems are under consideration for a later phase.

“Dunlap was selected over 11 other sites across six different states,” Ron Paquette, CEO of Hubner North America, said. “The cooperation and support provided by the local, county, and state officials surpassed competing locations and the local workforce demonstrated a strong work ethic and sense of pride in quality that best fit our family-owned company.

“Hubner is looking forward to establishing partnerships with the local high school and nearby universities to sponsor STEM projects, apprenticeship opportunities, and workforce development programs,” Paquette added.
