Humic Growth Solutions says it has bought a building in Sardis and plans to begin making and distributing products there by February.
The Jacksonville, Florida, company has bought a 65,000-square-foot (6,000-sq. meter) building, planning a 6,000-square-foot (550-sq. meter) addition.
Humic officials say local worker training programs helped attract the company.
Mississippi Development Authority spokeswoman Tammy Craft says Panola County plans to grant Humic property tax abatements estimated at $250,000 over 10 years.
Humic will also be eligible for a state rebate of part of worker income taxes, because it will pay workers more than $39,500 a year on average. That could be worth $400,000 over 10 years.
