OAKLAND – Windsor Foods will be taking applications in Water Valley next Tuesday for a new line that is expected to start up Nov. 2.
Company officials will be in the Mechanics Bank Community Room from 2 until 6 p.m. on Oct. 13 to interview and take applications.
Human Resource Manager Terry McMinn said that applicants should have two or more years of experience working in a production manufacturing environment.
The new line will add about 65 new people to the 210 already employed at the food processing plant.
Bob Tyler, Director of Yalobusha County Economic Development District, said that this was good news for the county. “Windsor Foods continues to be an outstanding employer.
According to McMinn, the new line is separate from another expansion scheduled for spring or summer of 2010 that will add a bakery and another production line.
