Manufacturing for the future in Mississippi

Mississippi is widely known as a strong manufacturing state in the U.S., and Mississippians, known for their innovative spirit, are consistently making advancements in the sector – from automobiles to rockets – ensuring Mississippi’s manufacturers maintain their competitive edge and achieve lasting success in the state. In Mississippi, ideas become reality thanks to premier incentives and advantages, including low utility and tax rates and no red tape. Companies’ greatest advantage, however, is our committed and well-trained manufacturing workforce of over 140,000 Mississippians, all of whom are driven by a “can-do” attitude and a job well done. As a result, the manufacturing sector in Mississippi is an economic powerhouse, and we continue to produce billions in output annually for some of the most recognized names in the world, like Toyota, Edelbrock, KOHLER, Milwaukee Tool and so many more.
