Barrette Outdoor Living recently announced plans for a significant investment to expand its 500,000 square foot facility in Bulls Gap, Tennessee.

Already one of the largest employers in Hawkins County, Tennessee, the expansion will add 162 new jobs to the area — adding a significant number of employees at the facility.

“Job creation in rural Tennessee is crucial to our state’s economic success, and I thank Barrette Outdoor Living for its investment in Hawkins County,” said Governor Bill Lee.
