BALDWYN, Miss. (AP) — A manufacturer of polyurethane foam is expanding its production in Mississippi and will create 90 new jobs in the process.

Gov. Tate Reeves attended Tuesday’s announcement in Baldwyn with officials from Innocor, WTVA-TV reported. The expansion will include doubling Innocor’s manufacturing capacity on one of its manufacturing lines. The company will also relocate another manufacturing line into what was previously used as a distribution center.

With 90 new jobs, Innocor’s employment will increase to more than 540 people in the Baldwyn area.

Innocor plans to complete the expansion by mid-February and to fill the 90 jobs by the end of the first quarter.
