Williams Sausage Brings Jobs back to Union City, Tennessee
Paris, Texas: The HWH Group closed a $44 million project for Williams Sausage in Union City, Tennessee on May 10, 2017. This closing involved five (5) Community Development Entities (CDEs), as well as, the blending of state and local incentives to provide Williams Sausage with the maximum benefit possible. The site selection process encompassed a (12) month search that covered 17 states and 160 communities before Union City was selected as the winning site. HWH Group specializes in these complicated site selection and financing structures.
During the last five years, Union City has seen a loss of 3,000 jobs due to plant closings or downsizing.
