About Us

The Middle Tennessee Industrial Development Association is an economic development agency funded by the Electric Cooperative, Municipal Electric and Natural Gas Distributors serving Middle Tennessee.

Guided by a board of directors, MTIDA represents and promotes industrial development in 40 Middle Tennessee counties, stretching from the Kentucky border to the Alabama state line. The steady growth of the area's population attests to the viability of the region.

We provide plant location services in cooperation with the State of Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development and Tennessee Valley Authority. We maintain continuous contact with local chambers of commerce, railroad industrial development departments, realtors, banks, and industrial development boards that serve this area.
