polo ralph lauren classic Shoe Plant Moves to Hazlehurst
HAZLEHURST, Ga. (AP) Executives with Wal Mart Stores Inc. say they plan to move production of some shoes from overseas to a manufacturing plant in south Georgia, which they say will create 250 jobs in the state.
The retailer on Thursday announced plans for the facility in Hazlehurst, a Jeff Davis County town about 100 miles west of Savannah.
Bentonville, Ark. based Walmart said its longtime supplier Elan Polo Inc. will start production of injection molded footwear in March 2014 in Hazlehurst as part of a joint venture with McPherson Manufacturing.
Officials say the facility will produce 20,000 pairs of shoes per day once it is at full capacity. Previously, the shoes were manufactured overseas. observes breast cancer awareness with “Pink Out Day”Dublin Police Department to hold 911 training for explorers programDubliners rally for David HooksOFTC Hosts Black History Month EventsDenise Brinson Selected as College Rick Perkins Award WinnerWarner Robins NewsRobins Financial Credit Union Announces Manager, Employee and Branch of the YearRobins Financial Partners with Rebuilding Together Warner RobinsRobins Financial Credit Union Announces Manager and Employees of the QuarterRobins Financial Credit Union Brightens the Holidays for Meals on Wheels Recipients Robins Financial Credit Union Supports Toys for Tots
