The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) recently announced that Siemens, a leading supplier of manufacturing, transportation, building and lighting systems, is locating one of its distribution operations in a 619,000-square-foot building at the Airways Distribution Center in Southaven, Miss., in DeSoto County. The Southaven facility, which is located three miles from Memphis International Airport, will provide Siemens' Industry Sector with a strategic location from which the company can better serve its customers.
The distribution center will house electrical distribution products, controls and motors. Operations to be performed at the facility include warehousing and light assembly.
The move represents a significant investment by Siemens, and the distribution center is expected to bring approximately 150 jobs to Mississippi. The Momentum Mississippi incentive program was utilized by MDA to assist the company with the move.
