SmileDirectClub to bring 850 jobs to Texas

SmileDirectClub is building a new manufacturing lab in Kyle, Texas, which will generate hundreds of jobs, according to CBS Austin.

With a $2.2 million grant, the Access Dental Lab will create more than 440 new qualified jobs, Gov. Greg Abbott said during an Oct. 8 press conference.

The new lab will also produce more than $36 million in capital investment. SmileDirectClub's Global Head of Supply Chain for Access Dental Lab Dan Baker said the company aims to establish 850 new jobs in the area.

"I am pleased that SmileDirectClub has chosen Kyle as their home base for Access Dental Labs [Texas], and I look forward to the prosperity and success that their investment will bring to the entire Lone Star State," Mr. Abbott said. "This exciting expansion will bring even greater economic prosperity for this community, and the job creation and capital investment spurred by this announcement will create even more economic opportunities for Texas."
