New Plant Boosts Biden’s Plans to Revitalize & Invest in American Manufacturing, Create Jobs at Home

President Biden “has made rebuilding American manufacturing a key component of his economic agenda. One way the President wants to boost manufacturing and create more jobs is by building a sprawling network of electric vehicle charging stations across the country.”

“The President argues future electric cars will be more climate-friendly and affordable for American families, and he wants half the vehicles sold in the US to be electric or plug-in hybrids by 2030. His administration has outlined a plan to use $7.5 billion from the bipartisan infrastructure law to build 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations across the country. There are currently fewer than 47,000.”

  • The company, Tritium, and the White House say the new plant will produce up to 30,000 electric vehicle chargers per year and create 500 local jobs.
  • The President also said it was ‘another example of what America could achieve’ through bipartisanship, namely through the passage of his bipartisan infrastructure law. He also made a point to thank Tennessee’s Republican Gov. Bill Lee for his involvement in getting the facility to his state.

  • ‘The new manufacturing facility Tritium announced today is more than just great news for Tennessee. Yes, it’s going to create more than 500 good-paying jobs in Tennessee, but it can deliver greater dignity and little more breathing room to workers and their families,’ Biden said at a White House event on the administration’s efforts to revamp American manufacturing, create jobs and lower energy costs for Americans.
