Just got back from a groundbreaking ceremony for upholstered furniture manufacturer H.M. Richards.
The company is adding 86,000 square feet to its 730,000 square foot facility in the Harry A. Martin North Lee Industrial Complex in Baldwyn. The company, founded in 1997, is expanding for the seventh time. Starting with 51 employees, the company now employs 650 and could add more if business warrants.
Company vice president of operations Joey Tarrant, seen in this photo, said H.M. Richards has added two production lines in the past year and 110 employees. The new addition, consisting mainly of finished goods warehousing, can accommodate three additional production lines.
We’ll have more in tomorrow’s Daily Journal.
