COMMUNITY IMPACT

NMTCs helped Dot Foods revitalize a rural community that lost more than 3,000 manufacturing jobs between 2010-2013. A new 167,000 SF warehouse distribution center and truck fleet garage was constructed to streamline operations, creating a logistics hub for the southern states of AL, AR, FL, KY, LA, MS and TN. While providing much needed quality jobs, this operation spurred economic revitalization in the region while enabling the expansion of new local businesses to the community. A matching funds grant of $114,000 was given to the local Tennessee College of Applied Technology to establish a new truck driving certification program; graduates are guaranteed a starting salary of at least $55,000/year.
