Northrop plant expansion opens

MOSS POINT, Miss. – Northrop Grumman has officially opened a new operational area at its Moss Point manufacturing center that will add a new line of work. The 101,000-square-foot Moss Point facility has been doing work on unmanned fixed-wing and rotary-wing systems since 2006. The company said Monday that the expanded production facility can now accommodate projects on manned aircraft systems and will bring new jobs to the region. Kevin Mitchell, vice president of global operations at Northrop Grumman's aerospace systems sector, said the company saw the number of employees at the site grow by more than 40 percent since 2017. Gov. Phil Bryant was among those attending a ribbon-cutting that marked the official launch of the new machine shop section at the Moss Point facility. (Source: Northrop Grumman, 06/25/18) Previous
