Beehive Industries Announces Knox County Expansion

Congressman Tim Burchett, Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, Knoxville Chamber, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory joined Beehive Industries as it announced the opening of its sixty thousand square foot facility.

Beehive’s expansion within Knox County continues its ongoing presence and allows the growth of high technology jobs for the area with expectations of local employment to exceed one hundred fifty people. These additional jobs will support manufacturing, engineering, and machining roles to broaden its footprint and almost triple the number of employees at its Tennessee operation. The new facility represents four million dollars of capital investment.

“Knox County continues to be a terrific area to grow as a business with Pellissippi State Community College, the Tennessee College of Applied Technology, the University of Tennessee, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory providing a well-trained workforce and technical partnerships to advance the state of manufacturing for this country,” said Jonaaron Jones, President of Beehive’s Additive Manufacturing Sales.

“Our goal is to manufacture one hundred percent of our product offerings at Beehive facilities. Ensuring we’re located in areas with like-minded industries and a qualified talent pool is critical to our success. Knox County has exceeded our expectations as we strive to be a top tiered defense supplier and valued member of the community,” said Darius Ehteshami, Beehive’s Chief Operating Officer.

Beehive Industries is a US-based additive manufacturing (3D printing) company specializing in the design and development of jet engines as well as parts manufacture across high technology industries and defense. Beehive employs more than 180 people and is committed to supporting the reindustrialization of America through advanced manufacturing and innovative offerings. The Knoxville site is part of an ongoing expansion from approximately forty thousand square feet less than six months ago to almost one hundred seventy thousand square feet by the end of 2024.
