Milwaukee Tool is Expanding Three Mississippi Locations, Creating Over 600 Jobs

Milwaukee Tool is expanding operations at three Mississippi locations, investing $33.4 million and creating 660 jobs. The expansions are planned for its sites in Greenwood, Jackson and Olive Branch.

“Once again, Milwaukee Tool confirms its commitment to doing business in our state by growing its existing operations and providing hundreds of Mississippians with jobs. The state values the partnership we share with Milwaukee Tool and is thrilled to play a role in the industry leader’s continued growth,” Gov. Phil Bryant says.

Milwaukee Tool will create the additional jobs at all three of its Mississippi facilities over the next four years to accommodate cordless power tool manufacturing, accessory manufacturing and additional distribution capacity.

“Milwaukee Tool is dedicated to driving growth and creating new jobs in the U.S.,” says Milwaukee Tool Group President Steve Richman. “We currently employ over 3,500 people in the U.S., more than 1,600 of which are in Mississippi. We are committed to investing in our people as we continue to deliver innovation and quality products for our users and distribution partners.”

The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building renovations and site improvements at the Milwaukee Tool Jackson and Olive Branch locations. MDA is providing assistance for public infrastructure improvements at the Greenwood location. The city of Greenwood is receiving a loan through MDA for the purchase of an existing building and parking lot improvements.

“This is Milwaukee Tool’s fourth expansion in Mississippi since 2012,” says MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “The success of the company demonstrates the state’s commitment to supporting our corporate partners through teamwork and providing a business environment that enables companies to achieve their goals in Mississippi.”
