Desoto County Economic Development Council

DeSoto County

DeSoto County is the fastest growing county in the State of Mississippi and Memphis MSA. Home to over 200 manufacturers and distributors, our economic base was established in the mid 1950’s with the consolidation of our public schools (now the largest and highly rated in the State), county wide
land use controls and industrial recruitment.

This commitment to providing a safe, secure, pro-business environment has not wavered, anchored in large part by our focus on a unique, unified approach to our economic development efforts among all public and business partners. Our annual average is 12 new industrial locations and 15 industrial expansions. The only new speculative industrial space constructed in the Memphis MSA over the past 10 years has solely occurred in DeSoto County and presently we have over 6 million square feet built and under construction.
