C&W Companies, a family-owned business and one of the largest contract embroidery and screen print firms in the U.S., is expanding its C&W Embroidery operations in Alcorn County. The expansion is a $2.4 million corporate investment that will create 32 new jobs and drive growth for the company.
C&W Embroidery specializes in the embroidery, screen printing and digital printing of logos on apparel, headwear and footwear. To accommodate future growth, the company is constructing an approximately 15,000-square-foot building on the property, renovating existing buildings and investing in new equipment.
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building construction and renovations. The town of Rienzi and Alcorn County also will assist with the project.
C&W Embroidery’s customers include Nike, Johnnie-O, Carhartt, Outdoor Cap, UniFirst and more than 50 colleges and universities.
