Milwaukee Tool Expands Greenwood, Mississippi, Manufacturing Plant

06/22/2015
Milwaukee Tool will lease a city-owned facility adjacent to its existing plant in Greenwood, Mississippi. The project represents a corporate investment of $16.8 million and creation of 126 jobs of which 105 have been filled.

Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for infrastructure improvements to Milwaukee Tool’s new facility, as well as for renovations to the company’s current facility. The city of Greenwood provided assistance for building renovations, as well.

“Milwaukee Tool is dedicated to driving growth and creating new jobs in the United States,” said Milwaukee Tool Group President Steve Richman. “In the last several years we have created nearly 900 new jobs across the country, more than 250 of which are in Mississippi. We firmly believe that, through investing in our people, we will deliver disruptive innovation and the highest quality products for our users and distribution partners.”

“MDA appreciates the teamwork of the city of Greenwood and the Greenwood Leflore Carroll Economic Development Foundation, which successfully assisted in helping Milwaukee Tool choose to grow in Greenwood and create more than 100 new career opportunities for the Mississippians in the Delta region,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough. “MDA is pleased to team with city, county and regional partners throughout Mississippi to provide companies a vibrant business climate that spurs growth and success, and this latest expansion by Milwaukee Tool is a testament to those collaborative efforts.”

“This announcement is great news for the Mississippi Delta as Milwaukee Tool increases its presence in Greenwood and creates new jobs for the region’s workforce. We are committed to partnering with our existing companies like Milwaukee Tool to advance industrial growth throughout the state, and we look forward to working with the company again in the future,” said Governor Phil Bryant.
