Edelbrock, LLC, manufacturer of high-performance aftermarket engine components, is locating headquarters and manufacturing operations in Olive Branch. The project is a $14.4 million corporate investment and will create 200 jobs.
Edelbrock’s core products include automotive performance upgrades such as superchargers, intake manifolds, carburetors, electronic fuel injection systems, cylinder heads, crate engines, valve train components and more. The company, a subsidiary of Edelbrock Holdings, Inc., recently merged with COMP Performance Group, which operated several facilities in Olive Branch and the Greater Memphis area. The newly formed “Edelbrock Group” will locate its headquarters in the Olive Branch facility, where it will create and transition 80 headquarters positions and 120 manufacturing and support positions. The company also will maintain warehousing and distribution operations at the Olive Branch location, retaining 90 existing jobs.
MDA is providing assistance for building improvements. The city of Olive Branch, DeSoto County and the Tennessee Valley Authority also are assisting with the project.
Edelbrock plans to fill the 200 new jobs within three years.
