Governor Phil Bryant, Hol-Mac Officials Celebrate Company¹s Expansion in Bay
Springs, Miss.

Bay Springs, Miss.­ Governor Phil Bryant, officials from Hol-Mac and local
officials cut the ribbon today on the recently-completed expansion of a
manufacturing facility at the company¹s location in Bay Springs, Miss. The
project represents a company investment of $3.8 million and is creating 150
jobs, 100 of which are already in place.

Hol-Mac is a manufacturer and supplier of steel fabrications, cylinders and
tanks. This latest expansion involves the addition of approximately 40,000
square feet to one of the company¹s facilities in order to accommodate an
increase in production.

³I am grateful to Charles, Jamie and Jeffrey Holder for continuing to invest
in Hol-Mac and the state of Mississippi and for their ongoing commitment to
creating jobs for Mississippi¹s workers,² Governor Bryant said. ³Hol-Mac has
been a valued member of the Bay Springs community and valued business
partner to the state of Mississippi for fifty years, and I appreciate the
company for its continued trust in our business climate and confidence in
our workforce.²

³Each member of the Hol-Mac team is excited to celebrate the ribbon cutting
of our expanded facility in Bay Springs,² said Jamie Holder, president and
chief operating officer of Hol-Mac Corporation. ³We¹ve received tremendous
support from the Mississippi Development Authority and our local community
and look forward to the continued growth of our business.²

The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the
project through the Existing Industry Productivity Loan program for the
purchase of new equipment. The agency also provided assistance through the
Development Infrastructure Program for the construction of the building
additions. Jasper County and the City of Bay Springs provided assistance for
the project, as well.

³It is always exciting when an existing business continues to invest and
grow its Mississippi operations, as it is a testament to the state¹s
business-friendly climate and skilled workforce,² said MDA Executive
Director Brent Christensen. ³I thank the Holder family for expanding its
facilities once again and our partners in Jasper County and the City of Bay
Springs for working with us to make this project possible. I wish Hol-Mac
many more years of success in Bay Springs.²

Hol-Mac last expanded its operations in 2010, a $2.5 million company
investment that created 35 new jobs.
