Milwaukee Tool will expand its footprint in the US with a new manufacturing facility in Clinton, Mississippi. Anticipated to open in November, this new facility is a $7 million corporate investment that will create 1,200 overall jobs in the region.

“At the core of everything we do at Milwaukee Tool is our dedication to delivering disruptive solutions that drive enhanced safety and productivity for our users. The new Clinton facility, as well as our ongoing investments in U.S. operations and manufacturing, are critical to ensuring we can continuously deliver this innovation to our end users and distribution partners with speed and agility,” said Steve Richman, Milwaukee Tool Group president.  

During the last decade, the company has grown its employee headcount in the state from 526 in 2010, to more than 3,659 in 2021. The company last expanded in Mississippi in April, announcing plans to construct a facility in Grenada.
