COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - A Norwegian company that makes supplies for high-performance clothing is expanding into the United States, and its first production site is in Mississippi.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1GQUrvf ) that a family company called Loxy plans to start production soon in Columbus, with six locally hired employees.

A third-generation member of the family, 23-year-old Peter Nordli, moved from Norway to Columbus to open shop in an existing building. Workers will print logos for the U.S. Army.

Nordli’s grandfather started the business, making pockets for jeans. Nordli’s father developed a reflective- and seam-sealing tape business and expanded the company into Portugal, Poland, Sweden and China.

Screen-printing gives Nordli a chance to further expand production.

He says he enjoys being in a smaller community, and Columbus reminds him of his hometown.
