Permobil, Inc. expects to invest $15.5M to expand its manufacturing operations at the company’s North American headquarters in Tennessee.
Located at 300 Duke Drive, Permobil aims to create 70 new jobs over the next five years as the company constructs a 70,000-square-foot addition to its existing Lebanon operations.
Permobil’s expansion stems from its continued growth in the North American market and expansion of innovative new solutions for individuals.
