MVP Group International, Inc. will expand its current operations at 600 Sherwood Drive in Union City, Tennessee
. The home fragrance company will invest $2 million and create 100 new jobs in Obion County.
“MVP is excited about growing our presence in Western Tennessee at our soon to be state of the art facility in Union City,” MVP Group International, Inc. President Troy Propes said. “Growing up in Western Kentucky, our family knows firsthand the quality of the work ethic and loyalty of the people in the region. We look forward to servicing our world class customer base out of the Union City facility. I would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who was instrumental in making this project a reality especially the local, state and federal economic development authorities.”
As part of the expansion, MVP International Group will consolidate distribution operations from South Carolina and Mississippi to Obion County in favor of a more central location in order to be closer to their manufacturing operations in Mayfield and Fulton, Kentucky. The company will upgrade the existing building and its operating systems to process the volume of goods transferred to Union City from other facilities outside the state.
“MVP and our department have prioritized putting a great labor force
in Union City via this newly expanded presence in our state,” Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “MVP has been a solid employer in the region and will be a great partner as Tennessee plays a more vital role in the company’s further expansion.”
The company expects its Union City facility to be fully operational in about one year. MVP Group is a complete home fragrance company that designs, manufactures and markets various private label, licensed and branded candles and home fragrance products such as Febreeze Home Collection. Some of their brands include Olde South Candle Company and Carolina Candle. Their products are sold directly to national and international retailers across many diverse multiple channels of distribution.
