Noble Supply and Logistics is locating distribution operations in Olive Branch. The project is a $4.41 million corporate investment and will create at least 25 jobs.
Noble Supply and Logistics provides worldwide supply and logistics services to the U.S. military; federal, state and local governments; and commercial clients. The company will occupy 67,000 square feet of a 250,000-square-foot facility in Scannell Logistics Park. The Olive Branch 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,” said Gov. Tate Reeves. “Noble Supply and Logistics’ new Olive Branch operations, the company’s largest to date, will benefit the entire 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 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 also is assisting with the project.
“The city of Olive Branch is pleased Noble Supply and Logistics selected Olive Branch as their newest distribution operations center,” said Mayor Ken Adams. “Their global supply chain management network will benefit from our labor market and amenities. We look forward to partnering with them. Olive Branch continues to lead the way for key development in Mississippi.”
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.
“This new distribution center in Olive Branch is the ideal location for Noble’s expansion of fulfillment services,” explained Noble Supply and Logistics CEO Tom Noble. “The facility expands our support to our U.S. military and government customers across the country and also supports shipments heading overseas to customers in Europe and CENTCOM.”
