Columbia Industries’ newest facility in Starkville has officially begun operations after holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday.
The project, which is expected to create 62 jobs in the Golden Triangle, is a $10 million corporate investment from the company.
For over 50 years, Columbia Industries has been designing and manufacturing equipment for solid waste, recycling, oil and gas, as well as aerospace industries.
The Starkville facility, which is now in the newly renovated Kirby/Nucor Steel building, will be where Columbia Industries manufactures several of its product lines.
“The community has already been so welcoming and inviting and we know the relationships we have built will last for many years to come,” Nathan Gorges, CEO of Columbia Industries, said. “We eagerly look forward to the future as we continue to expand and grow in the local area.”
Columbia was joined at the ceremony by officials with the Golden Triangle Development LINK, the city of Starkville, and Oktibbeha County.
“We want to thank all of those who have helped us in the process of acquiring this new facility and getting established within the community of Starkville,” Gorges stated. “It was due to the help of the local government officials and Golden Triangle Development LINK that we were so well supported, which made for an efficient move.”
