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.

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,” Blue Delta Jeans CEO and Co-founder Josh West said. “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.
