Milwaukee Tool expanding Mississippi manufacturing facility

Brookfield-based Milwaukee Tool announced a $16.6 million expansion of its operations in Greenwood, Miss. This, along with other investments to Milwaukee Tool facilities in the state, represents a $35 million investment in Milwaukee’s U.S. manufacturing operations over the last four years. Milwaukee Tool has locations in Greenwood, Olive Branch and Jackson, Miss.

“Milwaukee Tool is dedicated to driving growth and creating new jobs in the United States,” said Milwaukee Tool Group president Steve Richman. “In the last several years we have created nearly 900 new jobs across the country, more than 250 of which are in Mississippi. We firmly believe that, through investing in our people, we will deliver disruptive innovation and the highest quality products for our users and distribution partners.”

The expansion in Greenwood will create 126 new positions, of which 105 positions have already been filled. This brings the total number employed by the company in Greenwood to 508. Milwaukee Tool employs a total of 891 workers throughout its three Mississippi locations.

“This announcement is great news for the Mississippi Delta as Milwaukee Tool increases its presence in Greenwood and creates new jobs for the region’s workforce. We are committed to partnering with our existing companies like Milwaukee Tool to advance industrial growth throughout the state, and we look forward to working with the company again in the future,” said Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant. “I thank Milwaukee Tool for its dedication to Greenwood and Mississippi.”
