Automotive Site & Building Database:

This is a site and building database designed to assist automotive companies and/or site consultants to identify properties that can help a company achieve a high speed-to-market.  Sites and Buildings are classified into three colors – BLUEGREEN, and MAROON.

Greenfield Sites (BLUE): auto-supplier suitable greenfield sites.

Supplier Ready* Greenfield Sites (GREEN): Greenfield Sites that have been qualified using specific criteria designed to help a company achieve a high speed-to-market. These sites are evaluated and qualified by either a private site engineering firm or TVA’s InvestPrep Program.

Supplier Ready* Buildings (MAROON): Existing Buildings and Speculative Buildings that could be suitable for auto suppliers searching for an existing facility.
