PLANTERSVILLE — A medical furniture design and manufacturing company will locate a facility in Plantersville in northeast Mississippi.
OptimComfort Inc. announced plans Tuesday to locate a plant in a 27,000 square foot building formerly used by J. Ivy Industries.
The project represents a $500,000 corporate investment and will create 70 jobs over the next three years.
The Tupelo-based company manufactures lift chairs for individuals with musculoskeletal and neurological impairments.
The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for building renovations. The Tennessee Valley Authority also provided assistance.
The company currently has a showroom in Tupelo. Before its decision to locate a manufacturing operation in Plantersville, the company outsourced the operations to contractors.
