Welcome to the Made in Tennessee website, where we celebrate and connect Tennessee manufacturers!

Manufacturing is an integral part of Tennessee’s economy. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, the industry accounts for nearly 15 percent of the state’s total output and employs 11.4 percent of its workforce.

The UT Center for Industrial Services would like to highlight the importance of manufacturing in the state and is proud to launch the Made in Tennessee program! The goal of the program is to support the Volunteer State’s manufacturing community by raising awareness of their products and providing resources to help them grow!

Our Companies

Our Featured Business - Allison Boats 

Allison Boats began in 1955 when Paul Allison built the first boat from wood.  The early 1960's he built fiberglass boats and won races from Miami, FL to Lincoln, NE.  His son, Darris, built the first high performance bass boat in 1969-1970, which created the now billion dollar+ bass boat industry.  Allison Boats are all original designs, never any copies.  Because of the exclusive hull design, Allison Boats gives the customer a boat with great handling capability, a smooth ride and up to 3 times the fuel mileage of other outboard boats!
