What’s going on at this site near Toyota?
You might have noticed some work going on at this site right where Magnolia Way and Highway 9 meet.
Magnolia Way, if you’re unfamiliar with it, is the frontage road parallel to Toyota‘s plant in Blue Springs.
But there’s heavy equipment out there building an access road to a site that’s being cleared off you can see quite clearly from Highway 78.
It it a Toyota supplier?
Nope, sorry. It is, however, the new site for Thompson Machinery, which has a couple locations in Tupelo.
It seems they’ll be moving out there to a sizable $6 million to $7 million facility in a couple of years.
