Jackson, Miss. (May 1, 2024) – Hydraulic gear pump and motor manufacturer Geartek is expanding its operations in Corinth. The project is a $3.8 million investment that will create two new jobs.

A division of Hydraulic Analysis, Inc., Geartek’s products are used in a variety of industries, including forestry, energy, site clearing and mining. The company has long-established local ties to Corinth and is expanding its existing manufacturing facility by approximately 8,500 square feet to accommodate new manufacturing equipment for added production capacity.

The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance through the Mississippi Flexible Tax Incentive, or MFLEX, program. Additional support is being provided by Alcorn County and the city of Corinth.

The new jobs are expected to be filled once construction is complete.
