Delta Furniture Manufacturing announced Wednesday it will locate in the 80,000-square-foot facility formerly occupied by Astrolounger in Houlka.

The Chickasaw County project represents a corporate investment of $432,000 and will create 100 jobs.

Delta Furniture also has manufacturing operations in Pontotoc, where the company has 180 employees.

The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for infrastructure improvements. Three Rivers Planning and Development District assisted with the project as well.

Founded in 2009 in Pontotoc, Delta Furniture specializes in upholstered living room furniture, including sofas, love seats and chairs.

  1. that’s a great opportunity for job seekers but again i urge the company not to use this as an opportunity of making furniture that wont last like ive come across companies that make furniture that’s not durable.
