Community leaders, friends, and neighbors joined Matthew Hanna and his staff at PCI Manufacturing for a ribbon cutting and open house, on Thursday afternoon, at 3:00 p.m., at their new location on Loop 301. The doors were "swung open" and Hanna and his staff led the guests through the manufacturing plant where a step-by-step process of building the vaccum trailers were demonstrated.

Hanna informed the group that company had originally opened a year ago in May and had already expanded the company to employ approximately 330 people in Hopkins County, with plans to add even more, in the coming months, as they reached full capacity, at the new facility.
