DESA, manufacturer and marketer of electric lawn and garden tools and heating products, will bring more than 100 new jobs to its Bowling Green headquarters as part of the company’s plan to move its power tools manufacturing and distribution operations from Manchester, Tenn., to Bowling Green.
The consolidation and additional jobs in Bowling Green will provide additional manufacturing capacity to produce the new Remington Power Mower and support the continued growth of the Power Tools Division. More jobs are expected to be added as new products from the power tools line are introduced into the marketplace in the coming years.
Hourly wages for the new jobs will range from $9 to $17.
This is the second wave of good news that DESA has delivered for Bowling Green in recent months. In July, DESA announced that it would be moving its heating operations division from China to Bowling Green, adding some 400 jobs to the existing 300-member work force.
