Jackson, Miss. (TBA, 2022) –Hol-Mac Corporation, a Mississippi-based company, is expanding operations in Bay Springs. The $1 million corporate investment will create 31 jobs and create a base for continued growth for the company in Jasper County.
Hol-Mac’s expansion, the company’s fifth in Bay Springs, is for its Hammerhead Off-Road Armor line to keep up with consumer demand. The Hammerhead Off-Road Armor line began in 2008 by employees of Hol-Mac to provide the highest quality aftermarket bumpers for off-road and outdoor enthusiasts. The line created a niche market that continues to see exponential growth. The company is expanding into the neighboring shell building on the site to meet the present and future consumer demands of the market.
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance to help with preparation of a parking lot and site expansion. The company also qualifies for the Advantage Jobs Rebate program, which provides a cash rebate to eligible businesses that create new jobs that meet or exceed the average annual wage of the state or the county in which the company locates or expands. The Jasper County, the city of Bay Springs and Cooperative Energy are also assisting with the project.
Hol-Mac Corporation, in addition to the Hammerhead Off-Road Armor line, is a manufacturer of Pac-Mac Refuse, septic and oil field equipment and hydraulic cylinders. The company now has six facilities in Bay Springs, one facility in Winona and one facility in Gulfport.
“Hol-Mac Corporation’s expansion is another testament to Mississippi’s strong economy and business-friendly climate. This exciting milestone will help further propel economic growth and create 31 good-paying jobs for Mississippians. Thanks to Hol-Mac, the Mid-Mississippi Development District, Cooperative Energy, Mississippi Development Authority and all of our economic development partners who helped make this important project possible.” – Gov. Tate Reeves
“This is an exciting milestone for Hol-Mac Corporation, the area’s residents and the entire state as it will propel economic growth.
