Memphis-based Shelby Group International, which manufactures personal protective equipment, plans to move its corporate headquarters to Collierville and its distribution facility to Piperton.

As an incentive to build its headquarters in Collierville, the company was given a 10-year property tax and personal property tax reduction using the town's payment-in-lieu-of-taxes program.

Shelby Group International, which makes and sells personal protection equipment as MCR Safety, will build a 45,000-square-foot headquarters on Schilling Boulevard.

The Industrial Development Board granted the PILOT, which allows the company to pay 25 percent of its personal property and property taxes.

The company also received a retention PILOT from Shelby County under the same conditions. A retention PILOT is granted as an incentive for a company to remain in its current location.

SGI plans to build a two-story, 45,000-square-foot office building on Schilling Boulevard. The investment, counting personal property, will be about $10 million.

SGI will open a distribution center in Piperton, in Fayette County, which is one of the places it considered building its headquarters, Janet Geyer, assistant to Collierville's town administrator told the Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen, which ratified the PILOT.

"SGI owners are strongly committed to Tennessee and especially the Memphis area," Geyer.

She told the board SGI will move 103 full-time employees to Collierville. The median salary is $63,984.
