GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Worthington Industries, a maker of operator cabs for industrial mobile equipment, is expanding its Greene County factory and creating 140 new jobs.

The more than $14 million project will add four new product lines at the Greeneville factory.

The facility was established in 1999 as Angus-Palm Industries and currently employs 315 people. It was acquired by Columbus, Ohio-based Worthington Industries in 2012.

The company will hire new workers in areas including fabrication, welding, painting and assembly. Worthington is also looking for manufacturing and quality engineers.

Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd cited the training programs at Walters State Community College in developing the skills needed by companies like Worthington.

Worthington Industries employs more than 11,000 people at 83 locations in 11 countries.
