Nearly three dozen plastic container jobs are coming to Mississippi as part of a new manufacturing plant.
A company called iMold Plastics is spending $4 million to locate in Waynesboro and will set up shop in a 50,000-square-foot facility owned by Wayne County, according to the Mississippi Development Authority. That site is now under construction in the Meadowlands Industrial Park and will be leased to the packaging firm.
The company is a subsidiary of iSpice Foods of Jackson, Miss., which is described as importer, processor and supplier of peppers and spices, the state said.
IMold will supply containers to iSpice Foods from the new facility that will employ 33. The new container plant will be operational in May 2017, the authority said.
Managing Director Manouch Ilkhani of iSpice Foods said in a statement that state and local support for “iMold Plastics from day one made the decision to locate in Waynesboro an easy one.”
