We look forward to American Standard’s continued success, as today’s announcement brings us one step closer to our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

This new facility in Davidson County will allow American Standard Brands to expand its operational footprint and increase efficiency through enhanced supply chain connectivity.
