History in the Making
Southern Motion was founded in Pontotoc, MS in 1996. It currently employs more than 1,200 people at five facilities totaling 600,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing space. The company not only contributes to the furniture industry, but the American workforce as well.
“Southern Motion’s commitment to the local community and the state of Mississippi is remarkable,” Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said. “Over the years, Southern Motion has created hundreds of jobs for the residents of north Mississippi, and I thank the company for providing even more opportunities for the workforce of Prentiss County.”
Southern Motion manufactures motion furniture, including recliners, sofas and loveseats, sectionals and home theater furniture. It is one of the largest furniture manufacturers in Mississippi and is well known throughout the USA. Each component of the furniture made by Southern Motion is produced by southern craftsmen/women.
