Terberg Taylor Americas Group had a ground-breaking ceremony at the Communiversity on Tuesday, about a mile from where they will be building their new manufacturing facility. While the construction has been pushed back a few months, they are back on track to finish by mid-2024: “We had some construction delays and supply chain delays, and we’re kind of putting ourselves in a little grace period to do that,” Taylor Group President Robert Taylor said. “We hope to beat that . . . mid-2024 (estimate). . .To have a facility like this (Communiversity) less than a mile from our facility means everyday training for bringing in employment, recruiting, to be able to have meetings here while we’re building,” Taylor said. “It means everything.”
Terberg Board Chairman Godfried Terberg told a crowd of legislators and business leaders that “We have the opportunities here. . . If you look at the quality of the products, we believe we can conquer this part of the world in this product line.”
They plan to hire 90 employees, paying an average of over $50,000 each.
“I think it really speaks to the kind of people we have in Mississippi,” Gov. Tate Reeves told The Dispatch. “Because Terberg is a family company and Taylor company is here. This is a family-owned and operated company that treats its employees like family. And that’s what we’re going to see with the combination of these two great companies coming together, creating jobs here and really producing a product.”
