Kathy Johnson, SEIDA Program Director, Welcomes Mann + Hummel, USA to Tennessee:

Chattanooga, Tenn. - "We are pleased that Mann + Hummel has chosen Dunlap, Tennessee as the home for their newest location in the Southeast. This is wonderful news for the rural community of Dunlap/ Sequatchie County. A company location to this site creates great employment opportunity for the residents in Sequatchie Valley.

This would not have been possible without the collaboration and partnership of state, regional and local leadership. We truly appreciate all of the hard work of our partners in Dunlap, Sequatchie County, Southeast Tennessee Development District, Sequachee Valley Electrical Co-op, Industrial Development Board of the City of Dunlap, Tennessee Valley Authority and the State of Tennessee. "
