CLARKSDALE — Officials from Metso have announced the company is expanding operations at its Clarksdale facility, according to the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA). The expansion is the result of the company’s decision to increase its conveyor component manufacturing operations at the Clarksdale facility.
MDA reports Metso, supplier of technology and services to customers in the process industries, is investing $4 million in the project and plans to create 30-50 new jobs; the Clarksdale facility currently employs 61 workers.
“These investments are done to strengthen our services business capabilities for our mining and construction customers. After a detailed study we saw clearly that Clarksdale was the best location for us,” said Pasi Jokela, senior vice president of Metso’s Mining and Construction business.
MDA provided assistance in support of the project to help Metso move equipment to the Clarksdale facility. Additionally, the agency provided assistance for renovations to the Clarksdale facility and for workforce training.
