PHILADELPHIA — PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) — KemPosits LLC has dedicated its plant on the Choctaw reservation where it will produce bathtubs.

Tribal Chief Phyliss Anderson tells the Neshoba Democrat (http://bit.ly/Wqhtij ) the company's $2 million investment reinforces the tribe's business portfolio and creates jobs.

KemPosits President Charlie Quinn said the company's products include the Eco-Elite Series of walk-in bathtubs. He praised the cooperation of the Tribal Council and local business in helping the company with its plans to open the facility.

The first product to be manufactured will be a walk-in bathtub for elderly and disabled individuals.
