Global rail industry company, Pandrol USA is moving its North American headquarters to Memphis and creating numerous jobs and investment in the process.
The company will create 73 jobs with an average salary of $49,453 and invest $9,291,200 in renovating the facility at 611 Winchester Road in Memphis. EDGE assisted the company through a 15-year Community Builder PILOT.
This project will include environmental remediation and site work, which will greatly benefit surrounding neighborhoods.

The company has committed to spend nearly $1 million with MWBE/LOSB businesses.
