CORINTH, Miss. (AP) — A contract electronics manufacturer plans to invest $500,000 in its Corinth plant, adding 75 jobs over three years.
KeyTronicEMS, based in Spokane, Washington, announced Tuesday that it would add a new production line.
CEO Craig Gates says the company will add millions of dollars in production equipment. Gates said KeyTronicEMS is investing in the plant's long-term future. The company, with 230 current employees, has already started expanding.
KeyTronicEMS assembles circuit boards and products on a contract basis.
Mississippi Development Authority spokeswoman Tammy Craft says the agency will give KeyTronic EMS $350,000 to improve the company's county-owned building. Of that amount, Craft says, Alcorn County will provide $35,000.
Craft says KeyTronicEMS will also get local property tax breaks. Craft didn't know the amount.
Craft says projected wage levels aren't immediately available.
