Pensacola, Fla.-based Crown Health Care Laundry Services Inc. will set up laundry processing operations in Columbia, a move that will create about 150 jobs for the South Mississippi community.
The company, which provides specialized laundry services and linen rentals to the health care industry, will make a $6 million investment to establish the Columbia operations. Crown Health Care Laundry will operate out of the Marion County Industrial Building in Columbia.
Company President Don Haferkamp said the Columbia operation “marks another strategic milestone in the continued growth and expansion of Crown Health Care Laundry Services in the Southeast.”
Founded in 1955, the company has been a linen and service provider throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina for more than 50 years.
