Hunter Engineering to welcome international distributors to Mississippi plants Wednesday
On Wednesday, April 6, the Hunter Engineering plants in Durant and Raymond, MS will welcome for the first time an international group of distributors representing more than 40 nations. Hunter equipment, built in Mississippi, is exported to more than 120 countries across the globe.
During their visit, the distributors will tour Hunter’s three plants, meet with members of Hunter’s engineering and manufacturing teams, and be treated to some Mississippi hospitality at a welcome dinner in Jackson.
“We couldn’t be prouder or more delighted to welcome our valued global distributors to America and to our Raymond and Durant factories,” said Darcy Tallon, Hunter vice president of international sales. “They’ll have a chance to see first-hand the dedication and commitment that characterizes all our Hunter employees, and the quality and innovation they instill in all our Hunter products.”
The visit, shortly before the distributors will travel on to Hunter headquarters in St. Louis for annual meetings, commemorates the company’s recent 75th anniversary, including nearly 50 years in Mississippi.
