Hamilton Beach to move facility to Miss.

OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) - Hamilton Beach Brands is moving its distribution facility from Memphis, Tenn., to Olive Branch, Miss.

Hamilton Beach will lease 1.2 million square feet from ProLogis, a global provider of distribution facilities.

Hamilton Beach designs, markets and distributes small electric household appliances, as well as commercial products for restaurants, bars and hotels.

The company will occupy the space at ProLogis' Olive Branch Distribution Center.

Hamilton Beach spokeswoman Mary Beth Perreault says the lease term is ending at the Memphis facility. She says Hamilton Beach did not consider leaving the Memphis area.
