CLARKSDALE, Miss.–The new AirGuide manufacturing facility that was announced last August, opened Friday in Clarksdale.
It’s expected to create around 40 new jobs in the delta from the company that makes parts for the HVAC industry and energy efficient lighting too.
“We are very excited to see this project come together and we are looking forward to helping to improve the economies in Clarksdale, Coahoma County and the State of Mississippi,” said Doug Marty, CEO of AirGuide Manufacturing.
AirGuide has consolidated their operations in Mexico and Houston, Tex., into only the Clarksdale facility.
Governor Phil Bryant was on-hand with officials from AirGuide to mark their grand opening.
“The grand opening today of AirGuide is great news for Clarksdale and the Mississippi Delta as our state continues to grow its manufacturing sector,” Gov. Bryant said. “The opening of this facility and the jobs being created here will have a positive effect on the local community and economy for years to come.”
AirGuide has been in operation for almost 50 years.
