WAYNESBORO, MS (WDAM) -

A new company is moving its operations to Waynesboro, creating 33 new jobs. 

Plastic container manufacturer iMold Plastics, a subsidiary of iSpice Foods, is investing $4 million and creating 33 jobs into the city of Waynesboro.

“I am pleased to welcome iMold Plastics as the newest member of the Wayne County business community and newest corporate partner to Mississippi,” Gov. Phil Bryant said in an issued statement. “I know the company’s strategic location in Waynesboro combined with the area’s skilled workforce will position it for many years of success in our state.”

The company will locate in a 50,000-square-foot build-to-suit facility being constructed in the new Meadowlands Industrial Park.

The company will lease the facility from Wayne County, according to a news release issued by the company..

“I am grateful for the assistance we have received from the state, Wayne County and the city of Waynesboro. Their support of iMold Plastics from day one made the decision to locate in Waynesboro an easy one,” iSpice Foods Managing Director Manouch Ilkhani said. 

Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance for the installation of a water line. Wayne County is also assisting with the project, according to the news release.

“MDA is glad to provide support to iMold Plastics as the company prepares to locate in South Mississippi and create new career opportunities for Mississippians,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “We salute our teammates at the Wayne County Economic Development District, the Wayne County Board of Supervisors, the mayor and Board of Aldermen for their partnership with MDA, which was integral in bringing iMold Plastics to Mississippi.”

iMold Plastics’ Waynesboro location will supply containers to the iSpice Foods facility in Jackson, Ala. iSpice Foods is a leading importer, processor and supplier of peppers and spices from around the world, according to the release.

iMold Plastics is expected to be in full operation in Waynesboro by May 2017.
