BROOKHAVEN — An Arkansas-based agriculture products company has bought the former Specialty Minerals plant in Brookhaven.
Holmes Morel, president of M&M Milling Inc. of Texarkana, Ark., tells The Daily Leader that the company hopes to be in operation in six months and could hire as many as 50 workers.
Morel says he will spend more than $2 million to buy the 60,000 square-foot plant on 15 acres and reopen it after a two-year closure.
M&M Milling grinds, reduces and otherwise processes various dry, biodegradable materials into usable formats for its clients and ships the end product through its own trucking company.
It clients include the oil field, paper, plywood, landscaping and other industries.
