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


Manufacturing is an integral part of Tennessee’s economy. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, Tennessee's manufacturers account for 16.28 percent of the total output in the state, employing 11.5 percent of the workforce. Total output from manufacturing was $51.14 billion in 2015. In addition, there were 341,500 manufacturing employees in Tennessee in 2016, with an average annual compensation of $67,456 in 2015.


In 2015, the Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation authorizing the UT Center for Industrial Services (UT CIS), to develop a Made in Tennessee program to advance and celebrate Tennessee manufacturers and their products. The goal of the program is to support the Volunteer State’s manufacturing community by raising awareness of the products made in this great state and providing resources to help Tennessee’s manufacturers grow!

November 2019 Update - UT CIS is working to enhance the Made In Tennessee program as well as rejuvenate this website. If you have feedback on this website, we want to hear! Please email us at cis@tennessee.edu any time.
