By Sabrina Robertson, Natchez Democrat

VIDALIA  — Vidalia Denim, an up-and-coming denim manufacturing facility announced last year, is expected to start running with a full workforce of about 300 people by February of 2020, company officials said. One year ago, Vidalia Denim CEO Dan Feibus and Vidalia Mayor Buz Craft announced they were closing a sale on the old Fruit of the Loom factory for $12 million to make way for the new industry, which at the time had been known to the public only by the code name “Project Blue.”
