Parker Hannifin Corp.’s Engine Mobile Original Equipment Division is expanding its existing facility in Holly Springs, Mississippi, to expand its product development center.
The expansion, which should be complete in mid-2022, is expected to create 25 new product development jobs.
“By expanding the product development center and expanding our manufacturing storage and production areas, this project will enable us to increase our production and inventory capacity and continue providing our customers with advanced technology solutions,” said Sudheer Ghadiyaram, general manager, Parker EMOE Division.
The Holly Springs location manufacturers all first-fit OEM assemblies for fuel, air and crankcase ventilation filtration products. For the expansion, the division will construct an addition onto its current facility. The division last expanded in Holly Springs in 2017.
“Parker Hannifin’s decision to expand its Engine Mobile Original Equipment Division product development center in Holly Springs is a strong testament to our supportive business environment, which provides the winning formula for lasting, sustainable growth in Mississippi,” said Gov. Tate Reeves. “The state values its partnership with Parker Hannifin and thanks the company for once again entrusting our workforce to continue its legacy of product development and manufacturing top-quality products.”
The Mississippi Development Authority has certified Parker through the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is available to eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands. Marshall County is also assisting with the project.
