Mississippi is a prime location for today’s advanced manufacturing companies. Our state offers key advantages, including the third-lowest union membership rate in the nation, a top 5 ranking for speed of permitting and a top 10 ranking for competitive utility rates. Mississippi’s transportation network, which was ranked the eighth best in the nation in 2014, helps ensure efficient and timely delivery of goods manufactured here. Our state’s centralized geographic location provides single-day roadway access to more than 55 percent of U.S. businesses, providing an added competitive edge to manufacturers.
Mississippi also has an abundant supply of well-educated and productive workers. Our community colleges customize training programs to meet companies’ needs, both for new and existing industries, across the state’s target sectors. In 2014, more than 96,000 individuals from 550 companies benefited from community college workforce training. Mississippi’s research universities have a strong reputation for partnering with industry to move innovation from concept to reality.
