Knoxville, Tenn.– One East Tennessee facility has built enough homes over the past 16 years to house a sold out crowd at a Tennessee Titans game at LP Field. Clayton Homes’ Appalachia facility is responsible for providing 25,000 families across 17 different states with a place to call home.
Clayton Homes’ Appalachia facility built their first home in 1994 in Andersonville, Tenn. Today, more than 200 team members at the Appalachia facility will celebrate the construction of their 25,000th home with a ceremony and lunch at the facility.
“Clayton grew to be a large, national company because of the outstanding products that came out of facilities like Appalachia. The craftsmanship and work ethic that have been a hallmark of the facility are something we try and replicate in every one of our production centers,” said Kevin Clayton, President and CEO of Clayton Homes.
“Reaching a milestone like this is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of so many – from our factory workers to the contractors, drivers, and the retail personnel – it truly is a team effort,” said Ronny Robertson, General Manager of the Appalachia facility. “We look forward to providing another 25,000 quality homes to families at affordable prices.”
The Appalachia facility provides homes to retail home centers all over the Southeast, Midwest and Northeast. With production of the 25,000th home completed, the home will be shipped to a retail home center in Greer, S.C.
