NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Enexor BioEnergy LLC officials today announced that the renewable energy company will expand its operations in Franklin and move into a new manufacturing facility.

Enexor will invest $5 million and create approximately 50 jobs in Williamson County over the next two years. Enexor will locate its operations in a 40,000-square-foot facility at 1 Enterprise Court in Franklin, where it will conduct prototyping, testing and manufacturing.

Founded in 2015, the Franklin-based startup has developed a small-scale, renewable energy system that converts organic and biomass waste into clean electricity as well as hot and chilled water. This combined heating and power system has broad applications for commercial, industrial and institutional use.

Enexor anticipates it will begin manufacturing its renewable bioenergy system in late 2019. The company plans to export its systems to countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Since 2015, TNECD has supported 28 economic development projects in Williamson County, totaling approximately 4,075 job commitments and $420 million in capital investments.
