PHIPPS BEND — The new $13.7 million Miyake Forging plant at the Phipps Bend Industrial Park is beginning to take shape. 

Sometime in early 2018 the Japanese owned 45,000 square foot plant is expected to be up and running with 60 employees.

The plant will manufacture automotive bearing parts through hot and cold forging processes on property just south of the Ware Manufacturing facility at Phipps Bend near Surgoinsville.
