Something good always comes out of something bad! New factory near Dyersburg,Tn.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Carousel Realty of Dyer County Tn 248435000

Back in January, a factory in Marion, Illinois suffered a catastrophe when heavy snow fall caused their roof to collapse thereby causing a fire to break out. This company is named Southern Pride and they manufacture Yield King commercial grills and cookers.

This building was deemed a total loss and they are moving the manufacturing to an empty building in Alamo,Tn where they plan to start up production immediately. They are hiring through manpower and another temp service but they plan to hire up to 35 people in the very near future.

I know their biggest demand for people will be people with mig welding experience.

In a day and time when companies are closing this indeed is great news for our area. Alamo is located between Dyersburg and Jackson about 20-25 miles. Here is a link to the website that talks about the roof collapse and total loss of the facility.
