“Because of the economic benefits and corporate resources available in larger cities, it is typical for companies similar to The Yates Companies, Inc. to operate out of places like Jackson, Atlanta, Dallas or Houston. However, Philadelphia has always been home for me and my family, and we recognize the support that the people of Philadelphia and Neshoba County have given us over the last 40 years. There have been challenges along the way, but the communication between Yates and the local governments has always been open, and we have been able to encourage each other to strengthen and grow. That support, along with the growing, vibrant local economy and good educational opportunities have fostered in us a strong sense of commitment to the community of which we have been a part of our entire lives.”
William G. Yates, Chairman, Co-founder, The Yates Companies, Inc.
“The CDP and the Mayor helped us get assistance from the East Central Planning and Development District. They worked together to make our expansion plans possible.”
