LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) - A China-based ceramic tile company has selected Lebanon, Tennessee, to build its first U.S. manufacturing facility and create 220 new jobs in Wilson County.

Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Body announced this week that Wonderful Group will invest $150 million in the facility.

The company said having a U.S. based management team will expand its “existing manufacturing footprint internationally to produce high quality porcelain tile.”

Construction on the 500,000-square-foot plant is currently underway and is expected to be operational next year.
