A new wood remanufacturing company is headed to Vicksburg bringing fifty new jobs with it.
Industrial Wood Products of Mississippi plans to locate an industrial manufacturing operation in the area along with a paint line used on the company’s Rustic Collection. The pre-stained shiplap boards are sold across the U.S.
The facility will also allow the company to provide a higher level of service and decrease shipment times to customers across the Gulf Coast region.
Company leaders say they are excited about the new location.
“Our company is excited to have chosen Mississippi and Vicksburg as our location for this project. We found in Vicksburg a set of unique location advantages that will be of great importance to our company as we continue to grow our market share and expand our business,” said Industrial Wood Products President Ryan Hilsinger. “We worked closely with the Mississippi Development Authority and the Warren County Port Commission, and we found them to be agile and pro-business partners that were effective in helping us navigate the site selection process.”
Industrial Wood Products has committed to fill the 50 new jobs in Vicksburg over the next four years. The company also has two locations in North Carolina.
In a Tweet, Governor Phil Bryant congratulated Vicksburg on the new development.
