New jobs headed to Tunica County
A second German company will join Schulz XP in what is shaping up as a true industrial zone in North Tunica County.
Crankshaft manufacturer Feuer Powertrain Gmbh & Co KC will build a 156,600 square foot plant near Robinsonville, investing $140 million and creating 300 jobs over five years.
Feuer projects first production in early 2015, with construction starting early next year. The plant, located just across Kirby Road from Schulz, will be the company’s first in the U.S.
The announcement came in a groundbreaking event Tuesday, Sept. 24, that was hastily moved from the plant site to the Tunica RiverPark, after an early downpour created a muddy morass in the former cotton field.
