Laundry service to bring jobs to Marion County

MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Crown Health Care Laundry Services is beginning to move equipment into the Columbia Site.

The Pensacola-based company has taken care of the laundry needs for many hospitals in the area for years and is locating its new processing center in Marion County.

The project will involve a multi-million dollar investment by the company, which will hire 150 employees.

The company is expected to begin operations in early 2014. At full capacity, the facility is expected to process 40,000,000 pounds of laundry each year.
