On Monday, the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development announced that the Clayton Supply facility in Westmoreland is aiming to begin operations in early 2020. The Maryville, Tennessee-based company plans to add the new workers over the next two years.
The facility will manufacture wall panels and trusses for single and multifamily residential site-built homes.
Clayton is one of the largest homebuilders in the nation and currently employs about 5,400 people in Tennessee. It's a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.
