Delta Furniture Adds Factory in Mississippi
The factory, formerly occupied by Astrolounger, will create 100 jobs for the area and represents a $432,000 corporate investment.
The company has a manufacturing facility in nearby Pontotoc, Miss., that employs 180 people.
“We are excited to open our new facility in Houlka,” said Jeff Hamilton, CFO of Delta Furniture. “This plant will add much-needed capacity and will allow us to better serve our customers. We are fortunate to have support from Chickasaw County, the state of Mississippi and Three Rivers to help make this expansion happen.”
The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for infrastructure improvements. Three Rivers Planning and Development District assisted with the project, as well.
“Northeast Mississippi’s furniture manufacturing industry is a significant economic driver for the region and the state as a whole, and I thank the team at Delta Furniture for further strengthening our foothold in the industry through this new investment,” said Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant. “I wish the company many years of success at its new Chickasaw County location.”
