FXI Expands Its Manufacturing Center In Baldwyn, Mississippi

FXI, a leading producer of polyurethane foams, is expanding operations at its facility in Baldwyn, Mississippi. The project represents a corporate investment of more than $700,000 and will create at least 60 jobs in Prentiss County.

The company is a leading producer of innovative foam products for the home, healthcare, electronics, industrial, personal care and transportation markets. The investment includes adding automated equipment to accommodate the increase in production.

“We continue to pursue new customers with innovative solutions to grow our business and we are pleased that this growth allows us to re-invest in the community and provide additional jobs,” said John Cowles, CEO of FXI. “The city, county and the state of Mississippi have been great partners, and we look forward to our continued success.”

As an incentive, the Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for the expansion of the company’s storage and staging area. Prentiss County and the city of Baldwyn also provided assistance.

“We salute the leadership at the Prentiss County Development Association, city of Baldwyn and the Prentiss County Board of Supervisors who partner with MDA to win in the competitive economic development arena,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “FXI is an exceptional business partner to the state of Mississippi, creating exciting new career opportunities for Mississippians.”

“Today is a great day for Prentiss County and north Mississippi as FXI grows its operations in Baldwyn and provides 60 people with new job opportunities,” said Governor Phil Bryant. “Our existing businesses are at the core of the state’s economy, and when they choose to expand, it shows the world great things are happening here and Mississippi is open for business.”
