PORTSMOUTH, NH, and CHATTANOOGA, TN – July 28, 2020 – Micronics is pleased to announce that effective August 31 its corporate headquarters will be in centrally-located Chattanooga, TN.

The new headquarters and manufacturing facility is located at 1201 Riverfront Parkway. It is nestled within the textile manufacturing hub of the United States, right in the heart of Chattanooga and convenient to all major interstates and the Port of Savannah, which is the 4th largest port in the USA.
