The Vanity Fair Plant, also known as Wrangler, in Hackleburg held the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new VF Distribution Center. The original plant was destroyed by the April 27, 2011 tornadoes. There were fourteen employees inside the building when the tornado passed, and one life was lost. The new plant also has a memorial dedicated to all of the lives lost in Marion and Franklin Counties on that April day.
The VF plant employs 151 people. Many of the former employees remained employed with the company, but they were working in Holly Pond. The Hackleburg community, as well as others across the state are honored VF chose to return to Hackleburg. Wade Haggedorn, General Manager of the plant stated, "This is the best Distributing Center of all Vanity Fair."
Welcome back VF!
