North MS Tool, Inc., Relocates Operations, Creates 10 Jobs
Jackson, Mississippi — September 24, 2018 — North MS Tool, Inc., is growing by relocating its operations from Booneville to Ripley, Mississippi. The project is a $700,000 corporate investment and creates 10 jobs.
“When our existing companies, such as North MS Tool, choose to grow in the state, they are showing the world Mississippi is a great place for business – a place where companies can maintain their competitive edge and attain long-term growth and success,” Governor Phil Bryant said.
North MS Tool, which specializes in tool and die manufacturing for customers such as Winchester, Plumrose, American Pipe, SMW and CECA, is relocating its operations from Booneville to Ripley to better serve its customers. The company is renting a facility from CECA Forge, where it began operations in August. North MS Tool’s Booneville facility has been sold.
“We appreciate the Mississippi Development Authority along with the Tippah County Development Authority for working with us to make this move to Tippah County. It will enable our company to grow and better serve our existing customers,” said North MS Tool President Mark Floyd.
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for electrical work in the Ripley facility.
“This year, more than 80 percent of state-assisted economic development announcements have been expansions of our existing corporate citizens,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “North MS Tool’s decision to expand and create new career opportunities for the people of North Mississippi is evidence of the supportive business climate leaders at the state, regional and local levels work hard to create, enabling companies to achieve their goals in Mississippi.”
The addition of the 10 jobs brings North MS Tool’s employment to 20 workers. The existing jobs transferred from Booneville to the Ripley location.
