Currently under construction on Highway 39N, between John O’Neil Johnson Toyota and Walmart Neighborhood Grocery, Joe Hudson’s is expected to open for business by the end of November.
Roland Terry, vice president of Meridian-based Construction Services, Inc., said the 10,000-square-foot body shop will include 10 bays with “up-to-date automotive repair equipment.”
“I think it will make a fantastic addition to the area,” Terry said. “With it being a high-traffic area, it will definitely have a nice draw to it, not to mention this will be an opportunity for several jobs to come from the workforce training center.”
According to the company website, Joe Hudson’s Collision Centers have served local communities since 1989 and are described as “state-of-the-art auto body repair shops.”
With locations in Pearl and Hattiesburg, the company operates a total of 60 auto body repair shops in Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Alabama.
