After a decade of sitting vacant, the former Quad Graphics building in Corinth is back in action.

Gobble Properties, based out of Lawrenceburg, Tenn., purchased the 570,000-square -foot building and they are operating it as a third party logistics warehouse. Gobble Properties works in conjunction with the freight/logistics company South East Carriers, Inc., who provides shuttle service for their clients.

In roughly three months of ownership, they have seen a high demand for their services. They have secured clients that have taken over half of the current space and are quickly progressing toward filling the rest.

Owners of Gobble Properties, Paul and Joe Gobble said, “Having been in business for over 30 years, we are excited to expand our locations into the Corinth area. We look forward to a great relationship with Alcorn County and continued growth in the future.”

“It is great to see this building, which has such a long history in this community, being utilized productively again,” said Lowell Hinton, president of the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors. “We welcome Gobble Properties to Alcorn County.”

“The city of Corinth welcomes Gobble Properties,” said Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin. “We are proud they decided to invest in our community and excited to see that building being put back to work.”

“We are thrilled Gobble Properties has joined our community and we look forward to their long tenured success here,” said Alliance Project Manager GT McCullough. “They run a first-class operation and we believe they will be a great asset to Corinth and Alcorn County for many years to come.”

This building was built in Alcorn County in 1976. Known locally as the Quad Graphics building, the World Color building, or the Halls Printing building, it formerly housed the full printing operation of National Geographic magazine.

It is located in the South Corinth Industrial Park on Harper Road just off U.S. Highway 45.
