Flexsteel Closing After 35 Years in Mississippi

STARKVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Mississippi furniture maker is closing after 35 years. Flexsteel Industries’ Starkville plant, along with a second facility in Dubuque, Iowa, will permanently close by next month. Both facilities were temporarily closed in March because of a sudden drop in demand. The Starkville facility has about 170 workers who make products for recreational vehicles and hospitality customers. The company, headquartered in Dubuque, will now focus on home furnishings, e-commerce, and workspace solutions.
