GRENADA, Miss. (AP) - A north Mississippi aircraft painting and maintenance firm is expanding, with plans to hire 15 workers.

Sunshine Aviation on Tuesday marked completion of a new hangar that the city of Grenada owns and the company will use. Sunshine is investing $50,000 of its own money, while the city and Mississippi Development Authority are each investing $150,000. MDA spokeswoman Tammy Craft says the authority also loaned $192,000, while the Mississippi Department of Transportation says it gave $450,000.

The company, which moved from Tennessee to Grenada in 2013, now has three workers.

Owner Jim Lamberth says the new hangar will allow the company to paint larger private aircraft.
