HATTIESBURG- Gov. Phil Bryant has announced Regions Bank will build a 75,000-square-foot operations facility in Hattiesburg.
The project will cost roughly $23 million and will create at least 91 new jobs.
“Hattiesburg and the Pine Belt Region have celebrated significant economic development wins in recent years. Regions’ investment in this new facility and commitment to adding 90 new jobs, bringing the company’s total employment in the city to more than 400, will benefit the local community for many years to come,” Gov. Bryant said.
Associates from other business groups at Regions’ Kress, Front Street and Forrest Tower Facilities in downtown will now consolidate at the new facility. It will be located at the intersection of Lamar Boulevard and Lincoln Road.
The Mississippi Development Authority will provide help for site preparation and infrastructure improvements. The city of Hattiesburg and Lamar County will also assist in the project.
“The addition of 91 new career opportunities for the people of Hattiesburg is a strong testament to the fact the city and county are well-positioned for continued community and economic growth,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough.
Regions already employs more than 300 people in the Hattiesburg area.
