Cookeville Employees May Have Longer Commute

A major Cookeville employer has announced that it's moving more jobs out of town -- but this time, the employees are expected to follow the jobs. Cummins Filtration has announced that they will be opening a call center in Nashville that will be in the same facility as their world headquarters. It will consolidate the current call centers operating in Cookeville, Memphis, and Columbus, Indiana. Officials say about 15 employees probably will transfer from Cookeville to the new Nashville call center, and others will come from the other two locations, plus some newly hired workers. The center is to be operational by the end of the year. The Cummins Filtration unit also has a manufacturing plant in Cookeville.
