In 2011, sighs of relief were breathed after Albany Industries, a living room furniture company headquartered in New Albany, Miss., brought its business to the former B.C. Vaughan plant in Galax, along with the promise of 335 jobs over a course of three years.
The news came after a string of furniture factory closings in a city built by the industry.
Today, Albany’s employee count is up to more than 150 and still climbing, says manager Mark Gosnell.
