PONTOTOC — A company that makes reclining furniture broke ground yesterday for a plant expansion in northeast Mississippi.

Southern Motion says it’s investing $7 million in its new 180,000-square-foot production facility in Pontotoc.

The company says it will create at least 200 new jobs over the next two years, with the potential to double that number within five years.

The state’s economic agency, Mississippi Development Authority, says it provided incentives for infrastructure improvements to help with the Southern Motion expansion.
