MTD Consumer Group Inc. officials have announced that the manufacturer will invest $10 million in its Martin operations over the next five years.
MTD is Weakley County’s largest private employer and a leading global manufacturer and distributor of residential and commercial outdoor power equipment under brands such as Cub Cadet and Troy-Bilt. The company plans to create 200 jobs in Weakley County as it adds production at the Martin facility.
