BATESVILLE — Anderson Technologies has opened a contract manufacturing and precision injection molding plant in Batesville. The cost of the project was not disclosed.
Current plans call for the plant to be operational in Feb. 2010.
Anderson Technologies, headquartered in Grand Haven, Mich., provides contract manufacturing and precision injection molding services to companies in a diverse range of industries, including the office furniture, automotive, transportation, consumer products, small electronics, agricultural, horticultural and medical sectors.
“We are extremely pleased to bring the opportunity for new jobs and economic growth to Batesville,” said Glenn Anderson, owner and president of Anderson Technologies. “Batesville is centrally located to serve the southeastern United States, and we see tremendous opportunity in this part of the country. We also appreciate the skilled workforce, which is essential to help us maintain our reputation for quality and reliability.”
The new plant, to be located at 875 Highway 51 South, will employ approximately 50 people when it becomes fully operational. The company anticipates that applications will be accepted beginning in mid-Feb. 2010 through the WIN Job Center.
The Mississippi Development Authority provided $50,000 in Momentum Mississippi incentives and the Panola Partnership provided $10,000 to help facilitate this project. Anderson Technologies, a family-owned business, has flourished since its founding in 1946. The company currently employs 85 people in Grand Haven.
