Red Land Cotton Establishes Tylertown, Mississippi, Manufacturing Campus
The company’s new sewing operation is located in the 37,000-square-foot facility formerly occupied by Auburn Manufacturing, which it is leasing from the city. Red Land Cotton was in the process of constructing a 25,000-square-foot facility in Moulton to house its new sewing operations which will now be used as a warehousing and distribution hub.
“We are honored to grow our manufacturing footprint in the state of Mississippi and in Walthall County in particular. We have found the talent and resources to be plentiful and the local officials to be extremely helpful in getting us up and running. We hope to continue to grow our operation there for years to come, Red Land Cotton Owner Mark Yeager said.
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building improvements. Entergy also is providing assistance for the project.
“MDA strongly supports our state’s manufacturers, and we are glad to add Red Land Cotton to our robust portfolio of manufacturers and agribusiness companies doing business in our great state. The company’s leadership found the ingredients for success in Walthall County, and as a result, an existing facility is being put online once again, and 40 new jobs are being created for the area’s skilled workforce. MDA is grateful to our partners at the Walthall County Economic Development Authority and Entergy, whose commitment to economic development was instrumental in bringing Red Land Cotton to Mississippi,” said MDA Executive Director John Rounsaville.
Red Land Cotton began growing cotton in Moulton, Alabama, nearly 40 years ago. In 1994, the company built its own gin and today manufactures top-quality luxury linens, including sheets, blankets and towels. Red Land Cotton has filled 20 positions at its Tylertown location and plans to fill the remaining 20 within three years.
“Helping to bring jobs and growth to the areas we serve is how we power life for our customers, our communities and our employees who live and work here. We’re proud to be part of the team that helped bring Red Land Cotton to our state,” noted Ed Gardner, Director of Business & Economic Development, Entergy Mississippi.
