ST. LOUIS - Emerson Motor Technologies recently moved into a new facility near Memphis, Tenn., that the company said would help improve motor availability, flexibility and provide faster order fulfillment.

The new 150,000-square-foot Southaven Customer Service Center, located in Southaven, Miss., consists of a warehouse, a modification center and a local customer service center.

"Southaven provides an excellent strategic base for efficiently reaching our domestic and international customers," said Dave Gifford, president of Emerson Motor Co.

Plans for the center include having multiple Emerson divisions operate out of it, officials said.
