Shiloh’s Clarksville operation will manufacture magnesium cross car beams, or the large panel to which the dashboard mounts. Craycraft said both left and right hand components will be produced in Clarksville, accommodating U.S. and European vehicles. The Clarksville plant will supply parts to Mercedes and BMW for their SUV models.

The facility in Clarksville, located at 901 Alfred Thun Road, is undergoing major renovations to accommodate new machinery. Craycraft said the roof, which was about 25 feet, is being raised to 60 feet. “We are installing the first machine this week, the second in February, 2018 and the third in August, 2018,” he said.

The company plans to employ 110 workers during their start-up phase.

“We are proud of the improvements Shiloh has made to its business model and of the new product lines they will supply from their Clarksville location,” said IDB Chairman Billy Atkins. “We are happy to have these skilled jobs here in Clarksville-Montgomery County and look forward to Shiloh’s continued growth in this market.”
