In Greenwood, Milwaukee Tools is planning on expanding.
The city council approved an expansion request for the company at Tuesday's city council meeting. Milwaukee Tools leases their location on Sycamore Avenue from the city. Milwaukee Tools needs more space at its facility to store additional equipment and meet customer demand according to a resolution for the project.
Milwaukee Tools CFO, Ty Staviski, said the expansion of the location will also be creating around 300 jobs in the area.
There is no timeline set yet for the expansion or the hiring. Milwaukee Tools is also adding jobs to its Olive Branch and Jackson location as well.
