In 1930 Maymead Lime was the first privately owned industry to base in Johnson County. In 1960 the Leco Corporation opened hiring 161 women. The next industry, the Melville Slioe Corporation, came in 1966. This began a trend of industries moving into and out of the county. Today Johnson County has many industries which include the textile, woodworking, timber, ball bearing, and film salvaging industries. The Northwest Correctional Center, a division of the Tennessee Correctional Department, houses over 1,000 inmates and supplies 350 jobs in the county. These combined industries have a work force totaling approximately 1577 employees
