Hankins Lumber Company has announced that they have completed the purchase of the former Louisiana Pacific mill site, just north of their current operation in Elliott Mississippi. The purchase represents a $12.5 million corporate investment. Hankins Lumber President Albert B. Hankins Jr. “This facility is getting a complete renovation after being shut down as a small planer mill several years ago to a modern small log mill. This mill will allow Hankins to diversify its product line and enter new markets by producing 4x4s, 4x6s and 6x6s. We are proud to be a part of Grenada County.” When the renovations are complete the mill will employ 43 people and is scheduled to be in operation sometime in March 2021.
