NASHVILLE—Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty along with ForceX officials today announced the software company will open a new location in Nashville. Driven by significant company growth, its national customer base and a desire to be part of the technology and entrepreneurial community Nashville offers, ForceX selected an area near downtown Nashville as the perfect location for its central hub of operation, which will also include its headquarters. The company plans to invest $1.8 million and create 175 jobs over the next five years at its new location at The Sheds on Charlotte development at 2200 Charlotte Ave.
“I want to thank ForceX for continuing to invest in Tennessee and the new jobs being created in Middle Tennessee,” Haslam said. “When companies like ForceX choose to make Tennessee their home, it highlights our commitment to growing existing business and this announcement supports our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“Tennessee is becoming nationally recognized for its entrepreneurship and innovation, drawing talent from all corners of the globe,” Hagerty said. “Our state has a rich history of producing cutting edge ideas that change the way the world operates. Under Tracy Guarino’s effective leadership, ForceX is leading the way in new and vital technologies that set Tennessee apart. I am pleased ForceX can take advantage of the support that exists to grow technology companies, and I appreciate the high quality jobs they are creating in the Nashville area. I look forward to their continued presence and further expansion in Tennessee.”
