DeSoto County

DeSoto County is the fastest growing county in the State of Mississippi and Memphis MSA. Home to over 200 manufacturers and distributors, DeSoto County is one of the most sought-after markets for industrial development in the nation, thanks to the logistics advantages of our central U.S. and FedEx Superhub location.

Now home to 5 of the top 12 Fortune 500 companies, with the recent announcement of the only Google Operations Center in the nation, we are committed to ensuring a qualified and skilled workforce through innovative partnerships with Northwest MS Community College, the local Career Tech Centers, and the HR/Operations Network of our local companies. This sustainable workplace environment continues to generate, on average, 12 new locations and 15 expansions on an annual basis.
