ALCOA, Tenn. (AP) - Cirrus Aircraft is building a new center in East Tennessee that will create 170 new jobs.

Media reports say the center will become the flagship location for all sales, marketing and customer experience operations for the Minnesota-based manufacturer of small airplanes.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam joined local officials and company executives at McGhee Tyson Airport Wednesday to announce the center, which will be built next door. Officials say the new center represents a $15 million investment.
