By Andy Meek

Memphis may be landing another big economic development win from Canada, with the possibility of paper, packaging and tissue maker Kruger Inc. reportedly eyeing a major expansion in Memphis.

Tennessee is “ready to offer an incentive package” to encourage Kruger to install a new machine at its existing Memphis plant, according to a report in the Montreal Gazette.

The paper also reported a Canadian development agency is talking with Kruger about instead financing a new machine at its mill north of Montreal – a roughly $100 million project.

Last month, Memphis scored a big corporate relocation, with the announcement Swedish appliance maker Electrolux is bringing its North American cooking products manufacturing center to Memphis. That plant, for which Electrolux is investing $190 million, would bring more than 1,200 jobs to Memphis.
