The Enterprise is pleased to announce Gun Dog Supply (GDS) has chosen Mathiston, MS, as the new site for their company headquarters and e-commerce fulfillment center.
GDS will renovate the former Red Kap factory located on Highway 82, and plans to open in the Spring of 2018. The initial capital investment will be $1.7 million. The renovated facility will be 73,000 square feet on 20-acres. GDS selected this site for expansion earlier this year with help from Mathiston and Webster County community leaders.
Steve Snell, president of Gun Dog Supply said, "This new facility will allow us to grow and better serve our customers. The people of Mathiston and Webster county have been extremely helpful, and offer a very business-friendly environment. We couldn't be more excited to relocate our company headquarters here with room to grow and eventually create new jobs.”
