"After a thoughtful and thorough selection process, we're thrilled to be locating our National Redistribution Center in Olive Branch," said John Figueroa, president of McKesson's U.S. Pharmaceutical Division. "This brand new facility will allow us to more efficiently serve our growing customer needs with the most advanced material handling systems available, and will be seen as a model for McKesson's other distribution centers."
The facility will include brand new warehousing systems and significant technical upgrades from its current facility in Memphis.
The Mississippi Development Authority will contribute $4 million from its Financing Revolving Fund for the project. The city of Olive Branch will offer up to $260,500 for infrastructure improvements, and DeSoto County will extend $250,000.
