Milo's Tea Co. plans expansion, adding up to 200 jobs


"If the Homewood deal closes, Milo’s will plan to invest $106 million in the next two to three years into its Birmingham-area sites. That figure includes the purchase price of the Homewood plant. The company is also looking to purchase a property contiguous with its Bessemer site that used to house a facility for iron-casting company Grede.

All this would come with headcount growth. The company has 41 open positions across its footprint right now, and it would expect to grow its headcount by 150 to 200 people next year, Wright said.

Milo’s is Birmingham’s largest women-owned business, ranked by number of Birmingham employees. The company employs 268 people in Birmingham."

Good stuff. Season is 12 weeks, 3 weeks of playoff games. From April to July. July is also the month for the World Games.

You'll see a lot of this over time. Reshoring was becoming a thing even before the pandemic hit and screwed up all the supply chains. A couple of important reasons for this: 1) Corporate taxes were lowered to EU levels, making it actually profitable to manufacture in this country again and 2) We're seeing a situation where aging populations in places such as China, Germany, and elsewhere will soon start affecting productivity, et al, in traditional manufacturing countries.

At this point all they are doing is recycling existing scrap steel, which is great... but it doesn't really matter where the plant goes. They're just utilizing an existing site because they own it already. Lucky for (just outside of) Fairfield.

I saw it reported that it would result in 47,000 hotel room nights. 560/night for 12 weeks.

It would be big for West Jefferson County, interpolating from the Calvert Plant it would probably produce 1000 jobs for Fairfield
