SMYRNA, TN (WSMV) -

Nissan announced Thursday they are adding more than 900 manufacturing jobs to support future production of their Rogue crossover vehicle at their Smyrna, TN, plant.

The announcement comes in conjunction with the Rutherford County facility's 30th anniversary.

"Our investment creates hundreds of new jobs and underscores Nissan's longtime commitment to our employees and expanding operations around the country," said Senior Vice President of Manufacturing Bill Krueger in a news release. "Our dedicated workforce in the United States continues to build high-quality vehicles, such as the Altima, Pathfinder and LEAF, which are driving growth with sales up a combined 70 percent in May."

This is the first time the Rogue has been produced in the United States.

"Today's announcement shows the strength of the company and is another milestone in the long success story of Nissan here in Tennessee," Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said. "I want to congratulate Nissan for their accomplishments over the last 30 years and the tremendous impact their success has had on the state's economy and the thousands of people they employ."

With the new jobs, the plant will employ about 7,000 people.
