Foley Products Breaks Ground on $7 Million Manufacturing Facility In Prentiss, Mississippi
Foley Products' move into Mississippi will help the company better serve its customers and allow for future growth, company officials said. "We are excited about this new opportunity," said Kelley Lloyd, Foley Products Company's Alabama/Mississippi sales manager. "Our company is committed to providing a quality product, along with our expertise in engineering and superior customer service."
Gov. Phil Bryant said "I appreciate the company's investment in this project and the new jobs Foley Products is creating for the residents of Prentiss and the surrounding areas. The company's decision to build its new facility in Jefferson Davis County will have a positive, lasting impact on the area's economy."
"Mississippi is a key component of our southeastern strategy," said Foley Products Company Vice President of Operations Chris Davidson. "We plan to have our facility online in 2013 so we are ready for the economic growth we see on the horizon. We look forward to being a strong, responsible precast concrete products supplier to Mississippi and the entire Gulf Coast market area."
Mississippi Development Authority officials said they worked closely with company and local officials to help facilitate the project. The agency provided assistance for infrastructure needs, as well as assistance for on-the-job training. "I congratulate Foley Products on this milestone event and commend company officials for looking to Mississippi for their expansion needs," said Jim Barksdale, Mississippi Development Authority interim executive director. "MDA was pleased to work with local officials to support this project, and we will look forward to continuing to work with Foley Products officials in the years ahead."
