Lockheed expanding at SSC

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. – Lockheed Martin is expanding its operations at NASA's Stennis Space Center (SSC) in Hancock County in a $20.9 million investment that will create 30 jobs. Lockheed Martin's primary activity at SSC is to design and build satellites and spacecraft for government and commercial customers. For the expansion, Lockheed Martin is centralizing select thermal production capabilities to its SSC location and will begin manufacturing products that are key components of all spacecraft currently manufactured by the company. The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building renovations. The project qualifies for tax abatements under the Hancock County Board of Supervisors’ current incentives program. (Source: Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission, 12/03/19)
