Innocor Expands Production at Two Facilities in Baldwyn, Mississippi
According to the Mississippi Development Authority, the expansion will include doubling Innocor’s manufacturing capacity on one of its manufacturing lines. The company also will relocate another manufacturing line into what was previously used as a distribution center. The addition of the 90 new jobs will increase employment by Innocor to more than 540 in the Baldwyn area. Innocor plans to complete the expansion by mid-February and plans to fill the 90 jobs by the end of the first quarter.
“We are very excited for the opportunity to expand our business in Baldwyn. This would not be possible without the Mississippi Development Authority’s commitment to grow our existing industries in the state,” said Innocor General Manager Kevin Lindsey. “On behalf of Innocor, we sincerely appreciate the Mississippi Development Authority, Community Development Foundation, Lee County and the city of Baldwyn for all their support.
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building and infrastructure improvements and equipment installation. In addition, Lee County and the city of Baldwyn will provide property tax exemptions.
“MDA is pleased to assist Innocor with its expansion in Lee County, as 90 more individuals in Northeast Mississippi will have the opportunity to have good, steady jobs to provide for their families and give back to the community,” said MDA Deputy Director Mike McGrevey. “The teamwork of MDA, the Community Development Foundation, Lee County and the city of Baldwyn was instrumental in bringing these new jobs to our state.”
“Mississippi businesses, like Innocor, are at the core of our state’s growing economy,” Governor Tate Reeves said. “We are proud to work with and support businesses like theirs as they expand and add new jobs to Mississippi’s workforce. This expansion creates opportunities for those 90 people as well as their families to achieve more and thrive.”
