NEW ALBANY, Miss. - Home furniture maker Fusion Furniture has announced a new manufacturing plant in Mississippi. Between 150 and 180 new jobs will be added.
Fusion will manufacture sofas, love seats, sleepers, and accent chairs at the 200,000-square-foot plant, which used to belong to furniture supplier Emerald Home Furnishings. Production is set to begin November 2.
Starting pay for experienced woodworkers and upholsters will be $21 an hour, reports the New Albany Gazette. Company president Bo Robbins said all positions come up with benefits.
Fusion furniture was founded in 2009 out of a 40,000-square-foot facility in the nearby Ecru, Mississippi. 
In 2018, Fusion was acquired by Southern Motion. The combined companies boast more than 2,000 employees and more than 2 million square feet of manufacturing space. Southern Motion has five production plants in Mississippi totaling 1.5 million square feet, and Fusion Furniture has four Mississippi-based facilities, totaling 500,000 square feet.
