Amplify Cell Technologies

JACKSON, Miss. — Governor Reeves will attend the groundbreaking ceremony for Amplify Cell Technologies today. A new joint venture from Accelera by Cummins, Daimler Truck, and PACCAR.

The joint venture will localize battery cell production for commercial vehicles, investing $1.9 billion in a Marshall County facility. It will create more than 2,000 new jobs with an average annual salary of approximately $66,000. The project represents the largest payroll commitment in Mississippi history. It is the third largest economic development project in the state.

Amplify Cell Technologies will establish the first advanced commercial battery cell manufacturing plant for heavy-duty and medium-duty vehicles in the United States.

The new state-of-the-art 21-gigawatt hour factory in Byhalia, Mississippi, will make a significant economic impact on the local community. The company will deliver cost-effective and differentiated battery cell technology to support the adoption of electric vehicles for commercial transportation and industrial applications, contributing to reducing society’s environmental carbon footprint. The factory will begin producing battery cells in 2027.

The state also secured the largest economic development project in its history: a $10 billion investment from Amazon Web Services that will bring 1,000 new high-paying tech jobs to the Jackson metro area.
