Tennessee Is an Automobile Manufacturing Powerhouse

When it comes to manufacturing automobiles, Tennessee is an industry leader. The state has automotive operations in 88 of its 95 counties and is home to three major assembly plants – Nissan, General Motors and Volkswagen. Collectively, the assembly lines at these plants cover a staggering 15 million square feet.

As the leading automotive state in the Southern industrial spine and second in the United States behind Michigan, Tennessee’s automotive industry produces a new automobile every 20 seconds. With a strong presence like this, it comes as no surprise that automotive industry employment in Tennessee is 4.09 times the national average.

Regardless of whether your dealership is located in a sleepy small town like Lascassas, a growing mid-size city like Murfreesboro or a bustling metropolitan city like Nashville, you can boost profitability by keeping your customers informed and happy. When you streamline communications internally and with customers, you improve productivity and customer satisfaction. Plus, customers prefer to communicate with dealerships via text messaging and the widespread use of text messaging makes the software easy for employees to learn.

Automobiles play a large role in the lives of Tennessee residents in more than just a business sense.
