Shoals Technologies Group to Expand Manufacturing and Distribution Operations in Sumner County


Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter and Shoals Technologies Group officials announced today the company will invest $80 million over the next five years to expand its existing manufacturing and distribution operations to a new, larger location in Portland, Tennessee.

Shoals will create approximately 550 new jobs over the next five years in Sumner County, bringing the company’s total headcount in the region to roughly 1,400.

“Tennessee’s strong business climate and unmatched quality of life are key reasons why companies like Shoals choose to expand in our state. I thank Shoals for creating hundreds of new jobs for Tennesseans and am confident Portland and Sumner County have the skilled workforce to support these new positions.” – Gov. Bill Lee

As part of the expansion, Shoals will relocate its manufacturing operations to a 638,000-square-foot plant at 1500 Shoals Way. The additional staff and larger facility will enable Shoals to better meet its growing customer demand for solar power.

“Portland is excited to once again be a destination for investment and industry. Shoals has already been a vital community partner, and now, with $80 million of new capital and hundreds of jobs, they will be a top employer in the region as well.” – Portland Mayor Mike Callis

Headquartered in Portland, Tennessee, Shoals Technologies Group is a leading electrical balance of systems (EBOS) provider for solar, energy storage and eMobility. The company serves its customers worldwide from several locations in the U.S.
