Coil Design Corporation will soon call Dayton, Tennessee home, and it plans to create nearly 70 jobs over the next two years.

Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Coil Design Corporation officials announced Monday that the manufacturer will invest $3.4 million to establish its corporate headquarters and a manufacturing plant in Dayton. They'll set up shop at the old Goodman Manufacturing plant on Manufacturers Road. The plant to is expected to be operational in the second quarter of 2018.

Coil Design Corporation will invest in new equipment and facility upgrades. It will manufacture and design cooling and heating coils for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the HVAC and refrigeration industries as well as the aftermarket.

“For decades, Dayton has had a rich manufacturing legacy, especially in skilled trades that supply the HVAC industry,” Rolfe said. “By establishing its headquarters and production in Dayton, Coil Design Corporation will play a crucial role in boosting the local economy and providing jobs for the citizens of Rhea County. I’d like to thank Coil Design Corporation’s leadership for the confidence it has in the skilled workforce of Rhea County and look forward to its future impact on the community.”

“Coil Design Corporation will be the supplier of choice for coils in the heating, cooling, refrigeration and aftermarket industries,” Coil Design Corporation CEO Paul Guariglia said. “We have a skilled staff of employees that manufactured coils at this very site for 21 years under its previous ownership. The presence of an existing, highly trained labor force will allow us to grow at an accelerated pace while maintaining the highest level of quality. Tennessee is a great place to operate a business and Dayton is a location that met all of our needs. We are grateful for the support we have received from the city, county and state.”

Coil Design Corporation intends to hire machine operators, copper flame brazing technicians, assembly workers, drafters, engineers and sales personnel.

“We’re proud to have Coil Design Corporation choose Dayton for its new manufacturing and headquarters operation,” Dayton Mayor Gary Louallen said. “When so many companies take manufacturing offshore, it’s great to see a company investing in the U.S. and creating well-paying jobs right here in our community.”

“Our county is a great place to do business and we’re excited to have Coil Design Corporation choose Rhea County,” Rhea County Executive George Thacker said. “We have a business-friendly environment and they are a great fit for our community.”
