“We’re putting down roots here, and we hope that this facility will grow to create additional jobs in the future. We’ve proven that you don’t need to go overseas to get competitively priced, high-quality injection molded products, and our growth strategy relies on this location for diversification,” stated Anderson. “We appreciate all the support we have received from the Panola Partnership, CEO Sonny Simmons, the skilled staff and the Mississippi Development Authority throughout this process, and we are looking forward to building a successful business partnership with the community.”
The Mississippi Development Authority provided $50,000 in Momentum Mississippi incentives and the Panola Partnership provided $10,000 to help facilitate this project.
