LG Chem Cathode Manufacturing Plant Phase 1

The Largest Foreign Direct Investment in Tennessee's History

JE Dunn was selected as design-builder for this milestone project, which represents the largest project of its kind in the U.S. When fully built out, this cathode manufacturing facility for electric vehicle (“EV”) batteries will cover 420 acres with a production target of 60,000 tons of cathode material annually by 2027.

This initial phase includes enabling work, construction of off-site utilities coordination, the cathode material production building, the main security building, two truck entrance security buildings, a utility building, high and medium voltage electrical stations, and wastewater treatment and waste storage buildings.

The production facility will be over one million square feet, spanning five floors, and will stand 160 feet tall. Future similar-scale buildings are planned for this site following Phase I.
