Voyant Beauty Expands Olive Branch, Mississippi, Production Center

Voyant Beauty, manufacturer of beauty and personal care products, will invest $13.17 million to expand operations in Olive Branch, Mississippi. The project is expected to create 80 jobs.

The facility currently supports the company’s Hotel Cosmetics business, producing bar soaps. This investment will add liquid compounding and filling line capabilities for personal care and Hotel Cosmetics liquids, creating a complete solution for customers. Voyant Beauty expects to complete the expansion by June 2023.

“Our Olive Branch facility is one of the stars of the growing Voyant network. We are thrilled to be able to expand the current facility, creating new capacity for our customers, adding new jobs and growing our presence in the community. Our Olive Branch team has deep roots in this community, and it is one we are proud to be a member of. This is a long-term investment in our people, our company and the community,” Richard McEvoy, CEO, Voyant Beauty explained.

As an incentive, the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for building improvements and equipment relocation. The city of Olive Branch and DeSoto County also are assisting with the project.

MDA is glad to support Voyant Beauty as the company invests in its Olive Branch operations and generates new job opportunities for the people of DeSoto County. Economic development successes like this would not be possible without strong partnerships, such as those between MDA, the DeSoto County Economic Development Council, the city of Olive Branch, DeSoto County and the Tennessee Valley Authority, which share a common goal of building stronger, more vibrant communities through new investment and job creation,” MDA Interim Executive Director Laura Hipp noted.

“The city of Olive Branch is excited that Voyant Beauty is increasing their operation and presence in our city. This investment signifies the ongoing confidence of the business community in Olive Branch’s business friendly atmosphere and proven labor market. We look forward to partnering with them for continued success,” said Mayor Ken Adams.
