MARSHALL COUNTY, MS -
(WMC) - Hundreds of jobs are coming to the Mid-South following the announcement of a brand new Volvo truck distribution center in North Mississippi.
The center is located near Interstate 269 in Marshall County, Mississippi, where local leaders say this is just the beginning of boosting local economies.
Once it's finished, I-269 is expected to bring a lot of growth and job opportunities to people in Tennessee and Mississippi. Teddy Williams lives in Marshall County.
"We ain't got too many jobs around here," he said.
More specifically, he lives right by all of the construction that he learned will bring a Volvo distribution facility and more than 250 jobs to the community.
"We need more jobs, more factories and stuff like that. As you can see we ain't got too many factories around here," he said.
The factory is in Marshall County, but it is just a few miles from Collierville and Fayette County.
Marshall County Industrial Development leader Justin Hall says a new industrial park, an intermodal facility, and proximity to I-269 will bring even more jobs. The highway will allow truckers to get around Memphis faster and could lure more companies.
"We're expecting tremendous growth in the next few months and upcoming years," said Hall. "We'll have connectivity to I-40, 385, and then eventually I-55, 78 - the future I-22 corridor."
Hall says Volvo will invest $50 million in Marshall County. Six-hundred jobs have now been created in the new industrial park, and there are signs all over that this area is open for business.
Williams works part-time right now, but he says he'll be looking into the new opportunities, that are now right down the road instead of miles away.
"The more you build the better it will get," he said.
