NASHVILLE (AP) — A manufacturer of N95 respirator masks plans to set up a $25 million facility in Tennessee that is expected to create more than 200 jobs over the next three years.

The state Department of Economic and Community Development says Moldex-Metric Inc. is creating its first manufacturing center in Tennessee by retrofitting an existing building in Lebanon.

Moldex also plans to build a distribution center on the 21-acre site in Wilson County.

State officials say the company with headquarters in Culver City, California is expanding to meet a surge in demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moldex has been manufacturing respirators and hearing protection products for almost four decades.
