Hamilton Beach moving south out of Memphis

OLIVE BRANCH — Hamilton Beach Brands is moving its distribution facility from Memphis to Olive Branch.

The Commercial Appeal reports that Hamilton Beach will lease 1.2 million square feet from ProLogis, a global provider of distribution facilities.

Hamilton Beach designs, markets and distributes small electric household appliances, as well as commercial products for restaurants, bars and hotels.

The company will occupy the space at ProLogis’ Olive Branch Distribution Center.

Perreault says the center will have 125 employees.
