C&W Companies Expands Alcorn County, Mississippi, Operations

C&W Companies, one of the largest contract embroidery and screen print firms in the U.S., is expanding its embroidery operations in Alcorn County, Mississippi. The $2.4 million project is expected to create 32 jobs.

The company will construct an approximately 15,000-square-foot building at its current location, renovating existing buildings and investing in new equipment.

“The company has experienced significant growth coming out of the pandemic and the capital investment and expansion plan will continue to drive future growth, profitability, and community development. Our people are the key to our success, and we look forward to adding to our talented workforce. We appreciate the partnership with the MDA and look forward to working with this team on future economic and community development projects,” C&W Companies Owner and Vice-President Will Carnell said.

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for building construction and renovations. The town of Rienzi and Alcorn County also will assist with the project.

“Job creation is our top priority, and we take pride in assisting C&W Embroidery as the company adds jobs in its community. This expansion will have a positive impact on the area’s economy as it will strengthen the local tax base, and these 32 new employees will give back to the local community by spending at the area’s restaurants, shops and more. Economic development wins such as this are truly instrumental in creating stronger, more vibrant communities,” noted MDA Deputy Executive Director Laura Hipp.

C&W Embroidery specializes in the embroidery, screen printing and digital printing of logos on apparel, headwear and footwear.

“C&W Embroidery’s expansion is yet another testament to Alcorn County’s commitment to existing, locally owned businesses. It was a privilege to work with the company on this great project, and I look forward to seeing many more years of continued growth,” Clayton Stanley, President of the Alliance / Corinth and Alcorn County added.
