A company that provides medical devices for critical care and surgery, Teleflex Incorporated, opened its 627,000 square foot distribution facility in Olive Branch, Mississippi
. The facility is slated to employ 225 workers within four years of operation.
“Today is an exciting day for Olive Branch, DeSoto County and the entire state. The jobs that will be created here in the coming years will have a positive impact on the Olive Branch community and will further strengthen Mississippi’s health care economy,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “I thank Teleflex for helping demonstrate to other businesses around the globe that Mississippi is a great place to do business.”
The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for relocation and training needs. Additionally, the City of Olive Branch and DeSoto County provided the company with local tax incentives to assist with the project.
“MDA is glad to have provided assistance to help Teleflex relocate its nationwide distribution operations to Olive Branch, and we wish the company many years of success in its new location,” said MDA Executive Director Brent Christensen. “We extend our congratulations to the City of Olive Branch, the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors and the DeSoto County Economic Development Council on this exciting occasion.”
