United Furniture Expands, Locates Manufacturing Plant In Verona, Mississippi
“We would like to thank the Governor, MDA, TVA, the CDF and all others involved in helping put this project together. We are excited to expand our manufacturing presence in northeast Mississippi,” said United Furniture Industries CFO Doug Hanby. “We plan to begin some production in mid-February.”
The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for building modifications and workforce training.
“For 15 years, United Furniture has been a valued member of Mississippi’s business community and furniture industry. Throughout that time, the company has grown tremendously, and with the addition of these 300 new jobs, United Furniture will employ approximately 2,000 individuals in northeast Mississippi,” Governor Phil Bryant said. “That is a strong testament to the productive workforce and supportive business climate we strive to provide throughout the state. I wish the company many more years of success in northeast Mississippi.”
MDA Executive Director Brent Christensen said, “We are glad to have assisted with this latest expansion, and we thank our partners at the Community Development Foundation, the Lee County Board of Supervisors and the Tennessee Valley Authority for working together to bring this project to fruition.”
