Advanced manufacturing has long been the backbone of Gallatin’s diverse economy that weathered the pandemic with continued growth and record sales tax collections – all thanks to our 41 core companies including Beretta USA, NIC Global, and Simpson Strong-Tie.
The number speak for themselves. Middle Tennessee continues to grow with Gallatin being an employment hub where more people drive into the city during the day for work than drive out.
Gallatin has a steady supply of high quality talent from our high schools offering the most certifications of any in the state to Volunteer State Community College’s tech and manufacturing programs, to our Colleges of Applied Technology where students graduate with $0.00 loan debt and a warranty.
Our GEAR program - Gallatin Expansion And Retention - provides ongoing support and collaboration for existing high-tech manufacturing businesses as well as being a liaison to education partners and state agencies.
Gap Inc. expanded its Gallatin distribution facility with an $83 million capital investment that added both automation and 1,100 new full-time and part-time jobs. The Gallatin facility does fulfillment for Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Athleta and other brands in its family."We came to Gallatin in 1996 and are very proud to be part of the community and really, really engage in everything that goes on here.” - Kevin Kuntz, SVP of Global Logistics Fulfillment for Gap, Inc.
