Johnson City headquartered NN Inc. was confirmed Monday as the manufacturer being courted by local economic development leaders hoping to land a new $10 million corporate office building and 200 new jobs.

Mitch Miller, CEO of the Washington County Economic Development Council, said the bearing, precision metal, plastic and rubber component maker is the corporation behind "Project Stone" the council's code name for the economically significant project.

If NN Inc. keeps its offices in Johnson City and expands, it would mean hundreds of high-paying corporate jobs moving into the city with an estimated $50 million direct effect on the regional economy each year.
