James Avery to Open New Manufacturing Facility in Texas
The company plans to begin manufacturing as soon as June, adding 200 jobs to the local community.
The jewelry company purchased a 41,200 square-foot former military helicopter engine repair and testing facility in Corpus Christi, Texas, according to agency Cravey Real Estate.
James Avery has a retail store in Corpus Christi and chose the city for its new manufacturing site due in part to its strong labor market, said real estate agent Chandler Moreau during an interview with local news station KIII.
“It may even encourage other manufacturers. ‘Hey, James Avery came down here. It’s got a great labor market. Why don’t we go down there and tap into it? And let’s see if there’s some other infrastructure we can utilize,’” said Moreau.
The company plans to begin manufacturing as soon as June and expects to add 200 jobs to the local community.
James Avery announced the grand opening of its new regional office and retail store just outside of Austin, Texas in December 2021.

The retailer has more than 100 stores across four states.
James Avery did not respond to National Jeweler’s request for comment on the new facility.
