Community leaders and dignitaries from several West Tennessee counties recently joined together to celebrate with Advantage Manufacturing, Inc. in Friendship. The facility, started by displaced workers shortly after the Halls Tupperware plant closed in 1993, was granted a $1 million zero-interest Rural Economic Development Loan through Gibson Electric Membership Corporation. The funds will allow the company to grow its medical-grade plastics injection and blow-molding operations and begin a food-grade plastics injection molding operation.
