Our team is excited about the partnership that has been built with Harrison County and the employment opportunities that will be offered to area residents,” added Lowell.
“According to Bill Lavers, Executive Director of the Harrison County Development Commission, “I received a call from Jeremiah and met him on site in less than 30 minutes. Within two weeks the Harrison County Development Commission staff met with the leadership team of F.L.

We are excited about working with this 70-year old employee- owned company and locating the first industry in the North Harrison County Industrial Complex” said Bill Lavers, Executive Director of the Harrison County Development Commission.
