Renin Corporation, a manufacturer of interior barn doors, closet doors, and hardware, will invest $1 million to expand its manufacturing plant in Tupelo, Mississippi. The company plans to create 50 jobs in the region.
The project is designed to help facilitate the company’s growth strategy with major U.S. retailers, distributors and fabricators. Renin expects to fill the 50 jobs within the next 24 months. Expansion will also help the firm retail 53 associates.
“Renin has a long history with the city of Tupelo, and we are excited to expand our business and reinvest in a community that has supported us over the years,” said Renin Chairman & CEO Shawn Pearson. “This would not have been possible without the dedicated work and commitment of our employees and the Mississippi Development Authority.”
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance to relocate equipment to the Tupelo facility.
“Renin’s decision to expand in Tupelo speaks to the teamwork and dedication of economic developers at the state and local levels who work together to bring new jobs to Mississippians,” Governor Phil Bryant said.
“Lee County has achieved significant economic growth in recent years. As an international innovative manufacturer, Renin Corporation’s expansion continues that momentum, evidence of Lee County’s leadership investment in community development which paves the way for additional career opportunities for the people of the Lee county region,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “We salute our partners at the Community Development Foundation for their teamwork with Renin Corporation and MDA to bring this win to Lee County.”
