GREENWOOD, Miss. — Saylor Wheel L.L.C., a newly formed company, plans to locate a tire and wheel-assembly operation in Greenwood, a community of 14,000-plus residents in northern Mississippi about 125 miles south of Memphis, Tenn.
Saylor Wheel, which will make tire-wheel assemblies for the trailer industry at the new plant, will invest $23.4 million in refurbishing an existing structure into the plant. The company said it plans to employ 145.
“Two words come to mind regarding the start of Saylor Wheel: gratitude and teamwork,” David Saylor, president of Saylor Wheel, said, noting the many government entities and investors that helped bring the project forward.
“My gratitude for their help exceeds my reach for words. Now is the time to make wheels in the Delta"
