An international communications software and technology company is bringing new jobs to North Mississippi.
Headquartered in France, Quadient has chosen to locate its North American distribution operations in Marshall County. According to the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), the $11 million investment will create 75 new jobs.
“Marshall County’s ideal location in North Mississippi, convenient access to an exceptional transportation network and skilled pipeline of workers once again prove we have the winning combination for industry-leading companies with distribution needs,” Governor Tate Reeves said. “We are proud to welcome Quadient as the newest member of the Mississippi business community and thank the company for bringing dozens of new job opportunities to the people of Marshall County and the surrounding areas.”
Quadient provides technologies for processing and digitizing customer communications, mail, packages, business processes and customer experience management to businesses around the world. In a news release, MDA explained that the Marshall County facility will primarily distribute electronic parcel lockers, tracking solutions and mail processing technology to colleges, businesses and governmental agencies with similar needs.
“We are excited to be opening our North American distribution operation in Marshall County and look forward to developing strong relationships with the surrounding communities,” Doug Ward, vice president and general manager of Supply Chain Operations at Quadient, said “The new distribution facility will help support the expansion of Quadient parcel lockers and our mission of helping businesses build powerful, meaningful connections with their customers.”
Quadient qualifies for the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program through the Mississippi Development Authority. The program provides a rebate to eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands.
