Tull Brothers Expands Corinth, Mississippi, Operations
The company is purchasing the 65,625-square-foot Alcorn County incubator building, which will be retrofitted to expand the company’s manufacturing operations in Mississippi. Tull Brothers, which currently employs 86 workers in the state, plans to complete the expansion by the end of next year.
“Tull Brothers, Inc., has been providing quality products and services to the construction industry since 1962. Sam and Ray Tull believed in North Mississippi almost 60 years ago, and now we are excited to bring our latest expansion back home to Corinth and Alcorn County. Tull Brothers would like to thank the Mississippi Development Authority, Tennessee Valley Authority, Alcorn County and The Alliance for their assistance in making this expansion a reality,” Tull Brothers, Inc., President Fred Tull said.
Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for building improvements as an incentive. Alcorn County and the Tennessee Valley Authority are assisting with the project, as well.
“MDA is proud to support Tull Brothers as this industry-leading manufacturer invests not only in its operations, but in its employees and in the Corinth community. We offer strong competitive advantages that encourage businesses to grow and bring good jobs to their communities, as evidenced by Tull Brothers’ latest expansion,” noted MDA Interim Executive Director Laura Hipp.
Headquartered in Corinth, Tull Brothers also has operations in Jackson, Meridian and Tupelo, as well as locations in Tennessee. The company operates three divisions throughout its Mississippi and Tennessee locations: Architectural Glass and Glazing Systems, Overhead Door and Rated Opening Solutions, and Architectural Door and Hardware Solutions.
“TVA and ACE Power congratulate Tull Brothers on its decision to expand operations and create new job opportunities in Corinth. Helping to foster job creation and investment in the Valley is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service. We are proud to partner with The Alliance, Alcorn County, and Mississippi Development Authority to help further that mission and look forward to Tull Brothers continued business success in North Mississippi,” explained TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley.
“This is a special economic development win for Corinth and Alcorn County. Tull Brothers is displaying their great corporate citizenship by further investing in our community and our workforce. The Alliance is thankful to have great partners who worked together to make this project a successful one, and we look forward to watching them continue to succeed,” The Alliance President Clayton Stanley noted.
