“Our strong business climate and unmatched workforce make Tennessee the ideal place for global manufacturers like MSS Steel Tubes to thrive,” Governor Bill Lee said in a statement, adding “I thank this company for its commitment to job creation across Memphis and look forward to this company’s continued success.”
