Hundreds of new jobs are coming to East Tennessee.

According to the Knoxville Chamber, Leisure Pools is relocating from Texas to Knox County, bringing 240 new jobs.

Leisure Pools will go into the old Sea Ray Boats building in the Forks of the River Industrial Park in East Knox County.

The Chamber says it's been challenging to find someone to use that building because it's specially designed.

On its website, Leisure Polls says it's the world's largest fiberglass swimming pool manufacturer.
