TUPELO- The Renin Corp. is expanding in Tupelo bringing with it $1 million in corporate investment and at least 50 new jobs.
The manufacturer known for creating inside barn doors, closet doors, and hardware is answering the economic call with it’s most recent growth.
“Renin’s decision to expand in Tupelo speaks to the teamwork and dedication of economic developers at the state and local levels who work together to bring new jobs to Mississippians,” said Gov. Phil Bryant.
Renin is a Canadian-based designer and manufacturer. It has been considered a pioneer in the interior decor industry since its invention of the sliding mirror closet in the 1960’s.
As they proceed with the expansion, the Mississippi Development Authority will provide assistance to relocate the equipment to the Tupelo facility.
“Renin has a long history with the city of Tupelo, and we are excited to expand our business and reinvest in a community that has supported us over the years,” said Renin Chairman and CEO Shawn Pearson. “This would not have been possible without the dedicated work and commitment of our employees and the Mississippi Development Authority.”
The company expects to fill the 50 jobs within the next 24 months.
