Memphis Contract Packaging, the beauty product contract manufacturer, will invest $48 million to build a new production facility and expand its operations complex in Somerville, Tennessee. The company plans to create 261 jobs in Fayette County.
Located at 95 Ball Park Street, the new distribution and warehouse facility will support contract manufacturing for consumer products customers from leading global brands.
“We are excited to be a part of the community and have appreciated the local leadership’s partnership. Memphis Contract Packaging is experiencing immense growth and we welcome those that are interested in becoming a member of our team. There is a significant opportunity for our employees to have great careers as we expand. We look forward to many successful years together in the area. Thank you to Senator Blackburn for her support on this project,” said Troy Propes, CEO, Memphis Contract Packaging.
“Supporting long-term investments in rural Tennessee is one of our top priorities, and this expansion will boost the local economy in Fayette County. I thank Memphis Contract Packaging for creating these new 261jobs and look forward to seeing the benefit they will provide in West Tennessee,” said Governor Bill Lee.
Memphis Contract Packaging is a contract manufacturer of liquid beauty products such as shampoo, lotions and hand soaps. As a result of increased demand for sanitizing products due to the COVID-19 pandemic, foaming hand soap and hand sanitizer will also be produced at the Somerville facility.
“Memphis Contract Packaging is among the top five largest employers in Fayette County, and we appreciate its continued commitment to the community. An investment of $48 million will create a ripple effect of economic opportunity across the region, and we are eager to see the future growth of this company," TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe noted.
