Phoenix Building Solutions opening in Greenville
Published 3:33 pm Tuesday, January 31, 2023
Jimmy Chapman, the General Manager of Phoenix Building Solutions Limited, opened up the Wednesday evening event by giving all interested people, of which there were quite a few, the grand tour of the new facility here in Greenville.
The plant, located on Old Stage Road next to Montgomery Technology, Inc. and Shoreline Trucking, should be ready for full production of RV’s by the end of the month.
“There are several stations that will be set up,” Chapman said.
Each station will be set up to do an individual part in the assembly; such as framing, drywall, insulation, electrical and plumbing.
John Haire, the building official for Greenville, as well as Fire Chief Tim Warrick and Police Chief Justin Lovvorn attended the tour, listening closely to everything Chapman had to say.
“I had to take this to another level,” Chapman said. “We can build Park Models here. We’re set up with the fire marshall to do that.”
Chapman is also a disaster relief consultant in Gulfport, Mississippi.
“Now we’re getting certified for HUD (Housing and Urban Development), which I’ve got about two more months, and that certification will be in. Then we can start with the HUD homes,” Chapman said.
His experience in this area will certainly come in handy at Phoenix Building Solutions.
“We’re getting ready to put in six subdivisions in Tennessee,” Chapman said.
The two bedroom Park Model will be for the construction workers to live in while they’re building the new Ford plant there.
The Park Model is a two bedroom, two bath, with a kitchen and living room.
Chapman said it is currently listed for $35,900. The model on display Wednesday night was priced at $24,900 out the door.
“I’m trying to beat the RV market and stay in the housing market at the same time,” Chapman said.
When fully operational, the plant will be able to offer eight feet wide, as well as 16 feet wide models.
Chapman has a wealth of experience working not only in the manufactured home business, but has spent numerous years helping people when they are faced with the lowest point in their lives.
Besides working with Eric and Felicia Lutz, the owners of Phoenix Building Solutions, Chapman is also vice president of the board of directors for Hands for Healing International and their director of operations.
Hands for healing is a non-profit organization that helps those in need both nationally and internationally with food distribution, disaster relief and mission work.
The Lutz’s and Chapman are working hard to bring needed jobs to the area. They plan to hire 30-40 people now, and as the plant grows, to offer around 100 full-time positions.
“We love this area,” Lutz said. He and his wife have a home in lower Florida right now.

Phoenix Building Solutions is located at 100 Pleasant Hill Court, Suite B in Greenville, just off Old Stage Road.
