Gov. Phil Bryant will be in Vicksburg Wednesday to announce a new business coming to Warren County.

According to a press release from the Mississippi Development Authority, the announcement will be made at 2 p.m. at 169 Magnolia Road off U.S. 61 South.

Neither MDA officials nor Pablo Diaz with the Vicksburg-Warren Chamber of Commerce would name the company or discuss the type of business, although a source familiar with Bryant’s visit said the new company is expected to hire about 50 people.
