The president of Milwaukee Tool Group, Steve Richman, said, “We’re happy to, once again, expand our footprint in the state of Mississippi, where we’ve been able to recruit some of the greatest talent in the country. “Our skilled employees and the industry-unique culture we’ve established are the key to our success. In order to continue fulfilling the demands of our distributor and user partners with the speed and agility that characterise who we are as a company, we are dedicated to investing in fresh talent and the right possibilities.

At their new 563,000-square-foot facility in Grenada, Milwaukee is spending more than $60 million on cutting-edge technology and manufacturing machinery. As one of Milwaukee Tool’s primary axis points for service operations, the facility will hold crucial accessory production capabilities and join the business’s other service hub in Greenwood, Indiana.

The corporation employs 4,400 employees in Mississippi and has committed more than $209 million in domestic expansion projects over the past five years.
