Selma-based Bush Hog is expanding its manufacturing facility with a 12 (m) million dollar capital investment.
C-E-O Dennis Webster said the company will add 100-thousand square feet and upgrade technology at its existing plant at Selfield Industrial Park. He said the changes also will result in the loss of 130 jobs over an 18-month period. The project includes moving out of buildings in downtown Selma and transferring work to plants in Selma and Jonesboro, Tennessee. Webster said the changes and upgrades will help Bush Hog's profitability and eliminate errors in the manufacturing process.
The expansion project is scheduled for completion in October.
