CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., today released the following statement.
“Needless to say, I am thrilled for the employees at Volkswagen and for our community and its future,” said Corker.
As mayor of Chattanooga from 2001-2005, Corker worked with officials and community leaders to develop the 1,200 acre Enterprise South Industrial Park, which is now home to Volkswagen's North American manufacturing headquarters. Much of the negotiation that led to Volkswagen choosing Chattanooga occurred around the dining room table of Corker’s Chattanooga home.
