October 6, 2023 – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter announced today SGB Enterprises, Inc. will invest $1.7 million to relocate its headquarters and expand its design and manufacturing operations in Tennessee.
Through the project, SGB will create 41 new jobs in Columbia.
“I am so excited about SGB’s recent news, representing high wage jobs and a specialized and sophisticated employment sector for our market. We see their news as the latest evidence that Columbia and Maury County remain well positioned for continued growth, progress and prosperity in the days ahead. This announcement confirms just that,” said Columbia Mayor Chaz Molder.
The move will position SGB in closer proximity to its primary customer base across the Southeast and will be a driving force in allowing SGB to expand its products and services for the commercial and military simulation training sectors.
Founded more than 30 years ago, SGB Enterprises, Inc. specializes in designing and manufacturing procedural training systems, flight simulators, maintenance trainers and other simulated avionics and control components for the aerospace industry. SGB will more than double its employment by expanding to Tennessee.
Since 2019, TNECD has supported nearly 15 economic development projects in Maury County, resulting in approximately 3,500 job commitments and $4.8 billion in capital investment.
