A $4.41 million investment that will create at least 25 jobs will be located in Olive Branch.
Noble Supply and Logistics will be locating their distribution operations in Scannell Logistics Park. The company provides worldwide and logistics services to the U.S. Military; federal, state, and local governments; and commercial clients. The distribution hub will be Noble’s largest warehouse operations.
“Once again, Mississippi’s prime location and excellent transportation network win for the people of DeSoto County,” Governor Tate Reeves said. “Noble Supply and Logistics’ new Olive Branch operations, the company’s largest to date, will benefit the entire the region as dozens of new jobs coming online will strengthen the local tax base and generate stronger, more vibrant communities in Northwest Mississippi.”
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) certified Noble for the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is designated for eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands. The Tennessee Valley Authority is also assisting with the project.
“MDA is proud to add Noble Supply and Logistics to the state’s strong portfolio of industry-leading logistics companies that call Mississippi home,” MDA Interim Executive Director Laura Hipp said. Companies from around the country and around the globe continue to recognize the numerous advantages of a Mississippi location, like our exceptional workforce and central U.S. location, and I am certain the Noble team will benefit from our many competitive assets for years to come.”
Noble began limited operations in Olive Branch in January, supporting U.S. military installations in Europe and U.S. Central Command. It plans to continue to expand operations in Olive Branch throughout the year as it transfers programs to the location. Noble plans to fill 25 full-time positions by the end of the year.
