DPM Expands Manufacturing Facilities In Starkville, Mississippi

DPM Fragrance will invest a minimum of $5 million to expand its operations with the construction of a 150,000 square foot facility on 25 acres at Cornerstone Park in Starkville, Mississippi. The project is expected to create 100 jobs.

“Our growth rate and reputation in the home fragrance industry is a testament to the incredible team that we have at DPM Fragrance,” said Owner Tom Reed. “We’ve proudly called Starkville home for the last 25 years. It’s a town where we have built our success, and we look forward to continuing that partnership as we continue to grow.”

Construction of the building, in a site off MS Highway 25, will begin late 2015. As an incentive, the Mississippi Development Authority, Appalachian Regional Commission and the Golden Triangle Development LINK all provided support for this project.

“We are proud to support this great company as it continues to grow its operations and provide job opportunities for the area’s residents,” said Mississippi Development Authority Executive Director Glenn McCullough. “We thank our partners at the Golden Triangle Development LINK, the Oktibbeha County Economic Development Association and the Appalachian Regional Commission for making this latest expansion possible, and we wish DPM Fragrance many more years of success in Starkville.”

“This announcement is a prime example of a company expanding in Mississippi because of the top-notch business climate our state provides,” Governor Phil Bryant said. “I appreciate DPM Fragrance for its commitment to the Starkville area and the State of Mississippi and thank the company for creating these new jobs. I look forward to DPM Fragrance’s continued growth and success in Oktibbeha County.”
