A new industry is making its way to Marianna, and with it Oldcastle Precest will bring over 100 new jobs.
The Irish-based concrete company is moving into the Family Dollar Distribution Park just south of Interstate 10.
The industry will be located on 15 acres of land inside the park. With state grant money funding the project, the city won't have to pay a dime.
Moving the company into the area could also mean new jobs for Holmes and Washington Counties.
"If you can get 110 new jobs that pay over $30,000 a year, it's a benefit not only for Marianna and Jackson County, but the other areas that are our trading partners," said Marianna Mayor John Roberts.
The building process will begin in about three weeks. The business should be finished by the end of June.
