IDK. Sounds to me like they are expanding Corinth, moving Logistics and some new jobs over to the new place and keeping Prentiss Co. as is. Is Prentiss only a warehouse?

They are closing 5 locations and moving storage to Corinth. They are making a big deal of bringing 80 people here and creating 35 new jobs. Not mentioning how many are losing their jobs in 5 other locations. Why build a storage facility when there are so many empty warehouses existing here already??

They are building the new warehouse because the warehouse in Corinth is out of space. All these other empty warehouse they want to much for them. I haven't heard anything bout bringing 5 other warehouse to Corinth and I work here. Prentiss isn't moving.

That area out there behind acco looks like they need to take a wrecking ball to it. Nothing but empty buildings rottening to the ground.

They are talking about 35 jobs over 3 years. Odds are they going to reduce existing jobs by consolidating 6 warehoues which should be more efficient and reduce transport costs. I think Jumper owns the warehouses they are renting now.
Big deal about not much.
