BOONEVILLE, Miss. — Acco Brands will add a 162-employee call center at its Booneville factory and distribution center.
The company announced the $1.6 million investment Tuesday. The state of Mississippi will give Acco $150,000 to modify a building and the Tennessee Valley Authority will also assist.
The company, based in Lake Zurich, Ill., makes office supplies under various brands including Mead, Swingline, Five Star and Day Runner. It has more than 500 full-time employees in Booneville.
Acco spent $55 million to renovate and expand its distribution center in Booneville in 2008, getting at least $3.3 million in state and federal aid and adding 300 jobs at the time.
The company makes dry erase boards, ring binders and specialty binders in Booneville. The distribution center is one of three nationwide for Acco.
