Yazoo Mills Invests $4 Million Into Manufacturing Operations
NEW OXFORD, Pa. — March 17, 2014 — Over the past 18 months, Yazoo Mills has been working diligently to make the necessary changes within their manufacturing operations to sustain their current growth trend. The company has invested over $4 million dollars into essential projects, plant infrastructure upgrades, and additional production capacity.
A new 45,000 square foot distribution center was recently built in Hanover, PA giving Yazoo Mills a total of 195,000 square feet of manufacturing and distribution space for their product lines. With the infrastructure upgrades and remodeling, Yazoo was able to generate 20 local jobs and now employs over 100 individuals.
A team of managers worked together to redesign and reengineer the existing production lines to improve efficiency and ergonomics throughout the company. Other projects that have since been completed are the additions of new printing capabilities, new packaging line equipment, innovative adhesive storage and distribution system, ERP systems, and upgrading to energy efficient lighting throughout the plant. The construction of an employee training center and 10 new office spaces were also incorporated in the list of remodels at Yazoo Mills.
