With CARES funding, HomTex plans Selma PPE factory, creating 300 jobs

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — HomTex Inc. plans to open a manufacturing plant in Selma that will produce personal protective equipment and will create over 300 jobs, made possible by $10.5 million in funding from the CARES Act.

In an announcement this morning, Governor Kay Ivey outlined HomTex’s plans for the Dallas County facility, which will produce FDA-approved 3-ply and N95 masks for healthcare providers, government agencies and the general public.

“HomTex has made Alabama proud by stepping up during the COVID-19 pandemic to shift their production to create critical PPE supplies,” Governor Ivey said. “Their ability to be flexible in order to remain operational is the exact intent of the CARES Act funds.

“I appreciate their commitment to the economy and Alabama workers by providing needed jobs in Dallas County and thank HomTex for being a great corporate partner with the state of Alabama,” she added.
