AeroSafe Global, a provider of cold chain solutions for the safe, sustainable delivery and effective use of biopharmaceuticals across the supply chain, is locating manufacturing operations at I-22 Logistics Park in Olive Branch, Mississippi. The $2.5 million project is expected to create 100 jobs.
The facility will produce critical components used to protect critical cold chain medical and clinical shipments.
“After 15 years in service to our biopharma partners with a dedicated team of more than 250 employees, we are thrilled to announce plans for a new, state-of-the-art operating facility in Olive Branch. The DeSoto County region has the business climate, talent pipeline and infrastructure to support the continued growth of AeroSafe, and we are excited to become an active and valued member of the local community,” AeroSafe Global CEO Jay McHarg said.
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) has certified AeroSafe Global through the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is available for eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands. DeSoto County and the city of Olive Branch also are assisting with the project.
“Health care and manufacturing go hand-in-hand in Mississippi, as both industries are strong economic drivers for our state, particularly in North Mississippi. We are proud to welcome AeroSafe Global as the newest corporate partner to the state of Mississippi, a move that reinforces Mississippi’s stance as a leader in these important sectors, and we thank the company for bringing 100 exciting job opportunities to DeSoto County,” said Governor Tate Reeves.
Headquartered in Rochester, New York, AeroSafe Global is internationally recognized, serving biopharmaceutical customers around the world.
“AeroSafe Global is a respected company that provides environmentally sustainable packaging products to pharmaceutical companies. These containers also ensure therapeutic products are properly stored and delivered safely to medical facilities and pharmacies around the world. I thank the AeroSafe Global team for entrusting Northwest Mississippi’s outstanding workforce to produce the company’s innovative, top-quality packaging solutions for its domestic and international customers. Additionally, we appreciate the teams at the DeSoto County Economic Development Council, the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors and the city of Olive Branch for working with MDA to secure this exciting win for our great state,” said MDA Executive Director John Rounsaville.
