The original item was published from August 15, 2019 4:40 PM to August 15, 2019 4:43 PM

Kruger is expanding to Southaven and leasing 365,000 square feet in the space vacated a few years ago by Asics at Airways/Marathon Way.  This $3 million capital investment will bring approximately 30 new jobs to our city.

Kruger is a Canadian company headquartered in Montreal and founded in 1904 that has traditionally focused on the distribution of paper goods. They have expanded operations into tissue products, renewable energy, cellulosic biomaterials, innovative specialty papers for eco-friendly food packaging and labeling products, paper and paperboard recycling, real estate, and wines & spirits.

We appreciate the efforts of local commercial advisors/brokers and welcome Kruger and their outstanding operation to our city.
