Global supply chain management and technology company Noble Supply and Logistics will invest $4.41 million to locate distribution operations in Olive Branch, Mississippi. The project is expected to create 25 jobs by the end of the year.
The company will occupy 67,000 square feet of a 250,000-square-foot facility at Scannell Logistics Park. The location will be Noble’s largest warehouse operations.
“This new distribution center in Olive Branch is the ideal location for Noble’s expansion of fulfillment services. The facility expands our support to our U.S. military and government customers across the country and also supports shipments heading overseas to customers in Europe and CENTCOM,” Noble Supply and Logistics CEO Tom Noble noted.
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) certified Noble for the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is designated for eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands. The Tennessee Valley Authority also is assisting with the project.
“MDA is proud to add Noble Supply and Logistics to the state’s strong portfolio of industry-leading logistics companies that call Mississippi home. Companies from around the country and around the globe continue to recognize the numerous advantages of a Mississippi location, like our exceptional workforce and central U.S. location, and I am certain the Noble team will benefit from our many competitive assets for years to come,” MDA Interim Executive Director Laura Hipp noted.
Noble Supply and Logistics provides worldwide supply and logistics services to the U.S. military; federal, state and local governments; and commercial clients. The company began limited operations in Olive Branch in January, supporting U.S. military installations in Europe and U.S. Central Command. Noble plans to continue to expand operations in the city throughout the year as it transfers programs to the location.
