Seventy-five new jobs are coming to Corinth.

KeyTronicEMS is expanding its Corinth location by investing $500,000 and creating 75 full-time positions over the next three years.

“We really appreciate the continued investment from KeyTronic in our community,” said Clayton Stanley, president of The Alliance. “This investment, both financially and through the hiring of 75 people, is indicative of what a great place Alcorn County is to do business.”

Headquartered in Spokane, Wa., KeyTronicEMS has more than 45 years of electronic manufacturing experience. The service provider makes printed circuit board assemblies, plastic molding, precision metal stamping and fabrication.

For the expansion, the company is incorporating a new surface-mount technology production line into its Corinth facility.

“We are investing in the long-term future of our people here by adding millions of dollars of new production equipment to the plant,” said KeyTronic Corporation CEO Craig Gates.

Gov. Phil Bryant made the announcement on Tuesday.

“KeyTronicEMS’s expansion demonstrates the company’s commitment to Corinth and Alcorn County,” he said. “I appreciate the company for helping us show the world Mississippi is a place where companies can compete successfully and enjoy long-term, sustainable growth.”

Alcorn County is providing assistance for building improvements and City of Corinth officials are also providing support.

“We are excited to be able to help assist KeyTronic expand their operation and add new jobs in Corinth and Alcorn County,” said Alcorn County Board of Supervisor President Jimmy Tate Waldron. “The board stands ready to help existing industry grow and be successful.”

Mayor Tommy Irwin added, “We are also extremely pleased that KeyTronic has chosen to continue to invest in Corinth and Alcorn County and add new jobs for our citizens.”

Building improvement assistance will also come from the Mississippi Development Authority.

“We are thankful for our partners at The Alliance, the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors and the city of Corinth for their teamwork with MDA to help KeyTronicEMS expand in our state,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr.
