CDVCA is pleased to announce our investment in Modern Mill, Inc., a manufacturer of wood-alternative products

Modern Mill, Inc. is a Fernwood, MS-based manufacturer of a sustainable wood-alternative product (ACRE), an innovative replacement for tropical wood. ACRE is manufactured through a patented process using rice husks, which farmers would otherwise discard, and other proprietary additives. The company provides high quality manufacturing jobs in a very low-income community. CDVCA’s investment will fuel Modern Mill’s rapid growth, helping it to expand its zero-waste production capacity and nearly triple its current employee base.
