Wheelchair maker to build new plant in Lebanon

Wheelchair maker Permobil Inc. said it would build a new $12 million plant in Lebanon and double its Wilson County work force within the next three to five years.
The Swedish company employs 85 in Lebanon, where it has operated from Eastgate Business Park since 2000. Work on Permobil's new North American Operations Center should start this month on a 17-acre site in Park 840, with completion set for next summer.

Local real estate brokers Ronnie Wenzler and Charley Hankla represented Permobil in acquisition of the site.
