(Covington, TN) Unilever is expanding its Covington plant and adding 428 jobs over a four-year time frame.

The company will invest $110 million in the expansion.

The average job will pay $19 hour.

Once the factory is done, it will be the biggest ice cream factory in the world.

Unilever’s Covington facility, located at 2000 Hwy. 51 N., specializes in the production of ice cream and frozen novelty items for brands such as Breyers, Fruttare, Good Humor, Klondike and Popsicle.

“I want to congratulate Unilever on this significant announcement and thank the company for its continued investment in Covington and Tipton County,” Haslam said. “Part of our Jobs4TN strategy focuses on expanding companies already conducting business in the state, and today’s expansion announcement is another step toward our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
