COLUMBIA, Miss. — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant and officials from Crown Health Care Laundry Services announced recently that the company is locating laundry processing operations in Columbia’s Marion County Industrial Building. The project represents a company investment of $6 million and will create 150 jobs.
“I am grateful to the company for selecting Columbia as the home of its newest operation and creating so many jobs for the area’s residents,” Gov. Bryant says.
“Today marks another strategic milestone in the continued growth and expansion of Crown Health Care Laundry Services in the Southeast,” says company President Don Haferkamp.
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) provided assistance in support of the project for modifications to the publicly owned building. The County provided assistance for building modifications, and the City of Columbia provided utility infrastructure assistance.
“I am happy to welcome Crown Health Care Laundry Services to our state, and I am pleased MDA could provide assistance for the project,” says MDA Executive Director Brent Christensen.
Based in Pensacola, Fla., the company is an independent, full-service health care laundry processor and linen rental company. It has been a linen service provider throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina for more than 50 years.
