Officials with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development announced July 8 that Enexor BioEnergy LLC will expand its existing operations in Franklin later this year.

The company is expected to begin manufacturing its own renewable bioenergy systems later this year, a $5 million investment expected to create 50 new jobs in Williamson County, according to a TDECD release. The company will also move into a 40,000-square-foot facility within the city at 1 Enterprise Court, Franklin.

"Enexor is very excited to move into our new 40,000-square-foot manufacturing facility," Enexor founder and CEO Lee Jestings said in a statement. "Franklin is the perfect place for us to continue recruiting great people and manufacturing our clean energy product. Enexor is thinking globally, which is another reason why the state of Tennessee is the prime location to grow in.”

Enexor BioEnergy was founded in 2015 and makes small-scale energy systems that convert organic and biomass waste into electricity for residential and commercial use. www.enexor.com
