What Others are Saying “The (Chickasaw Trails Industrial) park is North Mississippi’s most ambitious and well-planned effort for a business identity and appeal beyond not being Memphis. Its impact means jobs and growth for related or supplying businesses on both sides of the state line” Bill Dries, Memphis Daily News, 2013 “It (Roxul) brings a lot to the table as far as the idea of bringing large-type projects to that area of the state,”. “DeSoto County is the fastest growing county in our state now and Marshall County is part of that growth as well”. Nash Nunnery, Mississippi Development Authority , 2013 It’s not an overnight success. This park has been in existence 15-plus years, It’s just grown and getting the infrastructure there was an important piece of the puzzle”. Bill Mobley, formerly of the Marshall County Industrial Development Authority, 2013
