JACKSON, Miss. – ArbaBlox, an engineered wood products company, is locating a state-of-the-art pallet blocks manufacturing plant in Winona. The project is a $51.34 million corporate investment and will create 41 jobs.

ArbaBlox will use the sawmill residuals from the Biewer Lumber facility in Winona to produce its patented-design composite wood pallet blocks. The venture will establish the first pallet block facility for ArbaBlox. The company plans to establish additional facilities in the future.

The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building improvements. The city of Winona and Montgomery County also are assisting with the project.

ArbaBlox’s Winona operations will build composite wood pallets for the food service and other industries.

“ArbaBlox is proud to announce its first composite pallet block manufacturing facility, to be located in Winona, Mississippi. We greatly appreciate all of the support from the community and MDA in helping make this exciting project a reality. We look forward to being a strong partner in the local community,” said Ed Milburn, ArbaBlox CEO.
