A great place to work…

Chances are, you’ve lodged in a cabin or walked across hardwood flooring that was manufactured in Scott County, Tennessee. Chances are, there’s a piece of Scott County, Tennessee, in one of your household appliances.

Scott County is or has been home to high-profile industry over the years, including Barna Log Homes (the world’s largest log home manufacturer), Armstrong wood flooring, Great Dane Trailers and Tennier Industries, which manufactures many items used by the U.S. Armed Forces.

It’s why we say there are little pieces of Scott County, Tennessee, all over the world.

Available industrial space and high-quality infrastructure, affordability of living and nearby recreation and relaxation opportunities, and accessibility to major cities such as Knoxville, Nashville and Lexington, all combine to make Scott County an attractive location for new industry.

To find out how we can accommodate you, please contact the Chamber of Commerce. Browse our Economic Development website for more information.

“I’ve always said that Scott County is the center of the universe.”

U.S. Sen. Howard H. Baker, Chief of Staff to President Ronald Reagan
