3M in Knoxville is expanding their product line. Plant Manager Greg Couves tells KNIA/KRLS News that they were recently awarded a line to create a type of flexographic printer tape. Couves says construction on the line is underway. Couves says that jobs won’t be added immediately, but 15-20 new jobs will be coming over the next year as construction is completed and the line starts operating in full. There will be no expansion of the plant itself – Couves says they have room within their existing plant to add the new line.
