Area Development Online News Desk (11/21/2013)
Customized Distribution, a distributor of food products to quick service restaurants, will invest $1 million to locate its distribution center in Jackson, Mississippi, at a 138,000-square-foot facility previously used by U.S. Foods. The new center is expected to create 60 jobs in the region.
“We are confident that the city of Jackson, Hinds County and the State of Mississippi are going to be a tremendous benefit to our company’s growth,” said Marc Gruber, President, Customized Distribution, LLC. “The work ethic of the Jackson community will provide great stability for our company and enable CDI to grow and provide even more jobs for the area in the future.”
“It is great to welcome Customized Distribution as the newest member of the Jackson business community and newest business partner to the state of Mississippi,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “I know the centralized location of this facility and our excellent transportation network will help the company effectively and efficiently serve its customers throughout the southeast. I thank the company for choosing to locate this center in Hinds County and for creating these new job opportunities for the residents of central Mississippi.”
The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for building renovations and relocation needs, and Hinds County provided assistance for public infrastructure improvements.
“We appreciate the team at Customized Distribution for selecting Jackson as the home of its newest distribution center and for bringing new life to an existing facility in Hawkins Field Industrial Park,” said MDA Executive Director Brent Christensen. “We thank our partners at the Hinds County Economic Development Authority and the City of Jackson for working with us to help bring this great company to our state.”
