International active companies, interested in doing business in Tennessee are invited to sign up for this event.
Tennessee is a relative unknown destination for Dutch automotive suppliers in the US, despite the fact that Nissan, General Motors and Volkswagen have major assembly factories in Tennessee. Besides these automotive factories within the borders, Tennessee also offers a strategic geographical location to supply OEM and Tier 1 suppliers all over the Southeast of the United States.
On Wednesday 21st of March, Tennessee’s International Business Consultant for Benelux hosts an event for the automotive industry in the Netherlands. Commissioner Bob Rolfe from the state of Tennessee will be present to meet Dutch companies in the Automotive industry. Bob Rolfe (profile) is one of the 22 members of the Governor’s cabinet in Tennessee.
In addition, Vice President Charles Wood of Chattanooga Chamber will also travel to the Netherlands to talk about the opportunities in Tennessee. Charles Wood is closely working together with the purchasing department of Volkswagen in Tennessee, to improve the company’s local supply chain. He assisted several companies by introducing them to Volkswagen and setting up local subsidiaries to supply to Volkswagen. Working closely with Volkswagen is giving him deep insight in the supply chain of Volkswagen, which he will share on the 21st of March with a small selection of companies in the automotive industry.
