Power and automation technology group ABB recently announced that it will be locating new manufacturing operations in Senatobia, Mississippi.

The company will establish operations in the 85,000-square-foot facility formerly occupied by Twin Creeks Technologies. The project will create 200 new jobs by its third year of operation, with another 100 expected to be added by the fifth year.

"We are pleased to locate this manufacturing operation here in Senatobia," said ABB's Chuck Treadway. "We made our decision after an extensive search. We found that Tate County offered an excellent combination of skilled workers, quality of life and a positive business environment."

Headquartered in Cary, North Carolina, ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility, industry, transport and infrastructure customers to improve performance while lowering their environmental impact. The company operates in approximately 100 countries and employs nearly 140,000 people.

"I thank the ABB team for its commitment to creating 300 new job opportunities for Senatobia's workforce," said Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant. "ABB's decision to locate in Mississippi demonstrates to the world that we have the competitive advantages needed for success in today's fast-paced economy. I wish the company many successful years in north Mississippi."
