ProNova Solutions groundbreaking at Pellissippi Place


Knoxville medical sciences company ProNova Solutions will break ground Tuesday, Aug. 13, on a $52 million development in Pellissippi Place research and development park in Blount County.
The company previously announced the project would include an office and research building with an assembly and test area initially supporting 35 employees and growing to 110 by 2015.
Pronova is developing equipment for proton therapy, a form of cancer treatment that reduces collateral tissue damage, side effects and treatment costs compared to conventional radiation therapy.
The company will be the first tenant in Pellissippi Place and eventually expects to employ more than 500.
The groundbreaking is at 10:30 a.m. at the entrance to Pellissippi Place, 3007 Old Knoxville Highway in Maryville.
Pellissippi Place is a joint project of Knox and Blount counties and the cities of Alcoa and Maryville.
Two years ago this month, the R&D park was officially opened with a “lighting of the park” ceremony attended by some 200 business and political leaders from the Knoxville region.
