Operations Are a Go at CalStar

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Operations at CalStar are already underway.

CalStar is located in the Golden Triangle Regional Global industrial Aerospace Park. The construction of the facility was finalized last month.

Bricks and Pavers are manufactured from recycled byproducts at CalStar’s home base in Racine, Wisconsin, but they hope to produce green jobs by opening a branch in Columbus.

A 20-year, $5.35 million loan from the Mississippi Development Authority to Lowndes County and a $5 million investment by CalStar made the new business possible for the area.

An official ribbon cutting has not yet been set.
