Our Roots Remain the Same

When you hear the word “roots” your mind most likely goes immediately to “tree roots.”  A tree’s roots are the anchor to the tree in the soil and help keep it straight and stable.  Tree roots are much like company roots in the sense that they help keep the company stable while they build and have continuous growth over many, many years.

Yazoo Mills has been around for over 110 years.  The company was established in 1902 in the heartland of Yazoo City, Mississippi (hence the company name).  We started out as a Yarn and Textile Mill and eventually made our way to our current location in New Oxford, Pennsylvania.  Even during the recession, Yazoo stayed true to their employees and didn’t lay a single person off.  While many companies were struggling, Yazoo was thriving and continued to build and strengthen a successful company.

At Yazoo, we are a family-owned and operated company.  We treat everyone like family.  Our employees are what keep our roots strong and everlasting as well as help the company
continue to build towards a successful future.  While our origins still remain in Yazoo City, Mississippi – we definitely do not forget where we came from and how far we have come since the start of the company.  Make sure to always remember where you came from and how far

Make sure to always remember where you came from and how far you have come — use the past to get you towards where you want to go in the future.
