BAY SPRINGS, MS (WDAM) -

Gov. Phil Bryant was in Bay Springs Tuesday to help the Hol-Mac Corporation celebrate its 50th anniversary and expansion of its manufacturing facility.

Hol-Mac makes steel fabrications, cylinders and tanks.     

As part of the expansion, the company has added 40,000 square feet of new manufacturing space and will be hiring 150 new employees. 

"This just helps expand Mississppi's economic development opportunities, because other companies see what we're doing here," said Bryant. "More importantly, this is a home-grown Mississippi industry and that's what makes us so proud," he said.

"There's a heck of a price to pay to build a company from ground zero up...a lot of bumps, a lot of failures, a few successes along the way, but we've been really blessed as a company," said CEO Charles Holder.

Hol-Mac was founded in 1963. It currently has about 800 employees at manufacturing facilities in Bay Springs and Winona.
