WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) -- An official groundbreaking ceremony for the Yokohama Tire plant in Clay County will be held next week.

Governor Phil Bryant's office says the groundbreaking ceremony will be held Monday at 9:30 a.m. at the plant site.

State, local and company officials will take part in the event.

Yokohama plans to build the plant on a megasite north of West Point.

The plant is expected to employ up to 2,000 workers and manufacture nearly 1,000,000 truck tires per year when all four phases of the construction project are completed.
