Milwaukee Tool has announced that they will be further expanding their USA manufacturing footprint with a new facility in Grenada, Mississippi.
The new Milwaukee facility will serve to “accommodate increased capacity for the company’s growing power tool accessories and power tool business.”
The facility, which Milwaukee Tool specifically describes as a manufacturing facility, will span 500,000 square feet.
Milwaukee currently produces quite a few power tool accessories here in the United States, such as Sawzall blades, Hole Dozer hole saws, step drill bits, and oscillating multi-tool blades. They also manufacture certain power tools here, such as Sawzall reciprocating saws and the M18 Packout-compatible cordless vacuum.
Milwaukee expects for the new facility to open in late 2022, and they say they have committed to creating 1,200 jobs in the region. 800 of the new jobs will reside within the new Grenada facility, and the other 400 jobs will reside at Milwaukee’s existing Mississippi locations.
Back in 2017, Milwaukee Tool pledged to create new USA jobs with a then-new 4-year expansion plan. More recently, Milwaukee Tool announced plans for USA-made hand tools, Now, they’re expanding with a new manufacturing facility.
Milwaukee Tool reports that they have invested $368 million in domestic expansion products over the last five years alone, and currently employ 5,500 people in the United States. They also say that they will be investing $60 million towards advanced technology and manufacturing equipment to support the new Grenada facility.
Milwaukee Tool has pledged to bring more jobs and tool production to the United States, and they’re delivering on those promises.
Not only that, this will be a manufacturing facility.
Sounds good to me!
