DEKALB A 15,000-square-foot expansion to the Kemper County Economic Development Authority's Business Incubator is almost complete.
Mike McGrevey, executive director of the Economic Development Authority, said the project is 70 percent to 75 percent complete and expected to be ready in May or June.
Located just outside DeKalb's town limits in the Stennis Industrial Park on Highway 15, the existing building has 20,000 square feet of leased space. McGrevey said he has not leased any of the new space but has had several serious inquiries.
He said the incubator offers new businesses low rental rates, shared secretarial services and assistance in technical and equipment needs.
He said the Business Incubator will host and has hosted such businesses as security firms, travel agencies and small manufacturing businesses, such as frozen foods production.
The incubator helps local economy, too.
