PHILADELPHIA — KemPosits LLC has dedicated its plant on the Choctaw reservation where it will produce bathtubs.
Tribal Chief Phyliss Anderson tells the Neshoba Democrat the company’s $2-million investment reinforces the tribe’s business portfolio and creates jobs.
KemPosits president Charlie Quinn said the company’s products include the Eco-Elite Series of walk-in bathtubs. He praised the cooperation of the Tribal Council and local business in helping the company with its plans to open the facility.
The first product to be manufactured will be a walk-in bathtub for elderly and disabled individuals.
