Kelvion, a global manufacturer of heat transfer equipment, recently received significant recognition and appreciation from the State of Tennessee for providing more than 50 new jobs at its newly reopened Knoxville, Tennessee plant. The recognition was celebrated during a ceremony at the Kelvion plant in Knoxville with Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, Terry Turner, Chairman of the Board of the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce, and approximately 30 other economic leaders in attendance.
The plant in Knoxville, formerly a Rocore plant, stood empty for many years. It was brought back to life in June 2018 by Kelvion to manufacture air coolers for the Refrigeration and HVAC industries. The refurbishment of the building began in mid-June 2018 and was completed in just five months. New cranes and production machines were installed but the most important success factor was hiring qualified staff.
