DeSoto County lands Trane facility

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Trane, one of the world's largest producers of heating and air conditioning systems, has selected Southaven for its new national parts distribution center.

The center, which is expected to open early next year, will create about 140 jobs.

Trane will also be transferring about 60 people to the new facility from Memphis, where another center is closing. The company is also closing a distribution facility in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.

Before choosing Southaven, officials considered sites in Memphis, which offered the company tax incentives.

Company officials say they selected DeSoto County and Southaven due to the mix of incentives, as well as the county's business-friendly climate.
