Polyurethane foam manufacturer Innocor is increasing production at its two facilities in Baldwyn. The expansion marks a $4.1 million corporate investment and will create 90 jobs. “Mississippi businesses, like Innocor, are at the core of our state's growing economy," Gov. Tate Reeves said. "We are proud to work with and support businesses like theirs as they expand and add new jobs to Mississippi's workforce. This expansion creates opportunities for those 90 people as well as their families to achieve more and thrive."
