COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — YokohamaTire Company continues to push forward. The company plans on having 25 new hires by the end of the month. Joe Higgins, CEO of the Golden Triangle Development LINK says most of them are from the area, which helps to boost our local economy.

Higgins: “I would say a good share are coming from the triangle area. Some of these are people with Golden Triangle or Mississippi ties that have moved on or coming back, which I think is good. And then some folks that are already in the area.”

Construction at the Yokohama site is expected to be complete this time next year.
