Tennessee-based manufacturer sites plant in industrial park

WALNUT — Officials say ALUMA-FORM has broken ground on the company’s new manufacturing facility in Walnut in Tippah County.

Gov. Phil Bryant says in a news release that the project represents a company investment of $6.7 million and will create 125 new jobs.

The Memphis, Tenn.-based company is building its facility in the Walnut Industrial Park, where it will manufacture and distribute its overhead power distribution products to domestic and international customers.

The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance for relocation, site preparation, infrastructure improvements and workforce training.

The town of Walnut, Tippah County, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Appalachian Regional Commission also assisted with the project.
