UNION CITY, Tenn. (KFVS) - A manufacturer in western Tennessee broke away from its parent company, becoming a standalone business.

Made in America Seating announced the spinoff from its California parent company in November.

Established in 2013, with production starting in 2015, the Union City facility was built to support three-shift operations. It manufactures office chairs and seating components.
