View this email in your browser


Bertolini Incorporated is pleased to announce its plans to upscale its East coast operations in its Lawrenceburg TN plant. Through this upscaling process Bertolini is thrilled to continue partnering with the county of Lawrence TN in job creation; this continued partnership shows both Bertolini’s and  the County of Lawrence’s commitment towards American workers and the creation of local jobs.
Bertolini established a production footprint in this facility in 2009 primarily to produce stackable seating for Churches and religious organizations. Since coming online, the Lawrenceburg plant has successfully produced 90% of chairs Bertolini delivered to Churches and religious organizations located in the Northeast, Southeast and Midwest United States.
With the successful acquisition of key hospitality customers located in the eastern half of the United States, Bertolini is now expanding the capabilities of the Lawrenceburg plant to meet the banquet seating needs of these customers.
The process of expanding the capabilities of the plant to meet these needs will require additional personnel to be hired and trained. Formalized training programs focused on Bertolini’s current banquet chair offering are already underway; these include training in high-end upholstery skills, welding, metalworking and machine operation. Any individuals that wish to inquire regarding employment and being a part of this upscaling should contact Terry Einhorn, HR Liaison, at 931-829-2703 x105.  “We congratulate Bertolini on this upscale of the Lawrenceburg operations and the new jobs it will bring to the community,” said Ethan Hadley, President & CEO of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.
Upscaling the Lawrenceburg TN plant will include installing additional equipment including a Star Bend CNC Bender, Pine Tube Benders, Punch Presses, a Doringer Cold Saw, a Multi-Spindle Drilling Unit, a Janda Spot Welding Unit, and other various fabrication equipment. These additional machines add the needed capabilities to successfully produce our most popular banquet chair models including the million-cycle-rated Everflex banquet chairs used by major hotel brands such as Hilton Worldwide and Marriott International.
The upscaling of the Lawrenceburg plant is currently in process and expected to be completed in the 2nd quarter of 2016.
