Blue Delta Jeans expanding in Lee County

Custom blue jean manufacturer Blue Delta Jeans Company is expanding at its location in Lee County. The project is a $1.5 million corporate investment and will retain 55 jobs.

“The growth of Blue Delta Jeans over the years speaks to the favorable business environment we have cultivated here in Mississippi,” said Gov. Tate Reeves. “Blue Delta’s decision to expand in Lee County enhances our reputation as a top destination for business and stands as a testament to the fact that “Made in Mississippi” is truly a stamp of quality here at home and around the world. I thank the Blue Delta team for always choosing Mississippi and wish the company continued success.”

Blue Delta currently leases 15,000 square feet of its facility in Shannon. The company is purchasing the facility, which will allow it to expand to fill its entire 25,000 square feet. Blue Delta plans to renovate the facility, as well.

“Blue Delta Jeans’ latest investment in Mississippi is indicative of the state’s vibrant entrepreneurial spirit and its commitment to fostering innovation and growth,” said Bill Cork, Mississippi Development Authority Executive Director. “MDA is proud to support companies like Blue Delta Jeans as they contribute to our state’s economic prosperity and provide new opportunities for Mississippians.”

The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building improvements.

“This loan from the Mississippi Development Authority will allow us to remain in our current facility for many years to come,” explained Blue Delta Jeans CEO and Co-founder Josh West. “Our state and local partners have supported Blue Delta since we started in 2012, and we appreciate their continued support. We are blessed to call Mississippi home.”

Founded in 2012 in Tupelo, the bespoke denim company, whose clients include artists and athletes, creates custom-fit, tailored blue jeans to each client’s specific measurements, operating by its motto “one size fits one.” Today, Blue Delta products are sold online and carried by more than 400 wholesale partners across the U.S., Canada and the UK.

“On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, I am thrilled to see the expansion of Blue Delta,” said Lee County Board of Supervisors President Wesley Webb. “This investment not only bolsters our local economy but also underscores the importance of supporting homegrown businesses and nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit that drives our nation forward. I remember Josh in the early days conceptualizing the business, and now Blue Delta is a world-class brand born and raised in Lee County.”
