A major defense technology company is expanding its operations in Stone County with a $75 million investment expected to create 60 new jobs.

Anduril Industries out of Costa Mesa, Calif. acquired Adranos, Inc. last year, along with its solid rocket motor production site in McHenry. The expansion will enhance the capabilities of that facility to increase the propellant mixing and solid rocket motor annual production capacity from 600 to more than 6,000 tactical-scale solid rocket motors.

On a mission to transform U.S. and allied militaries with advanced technology, Anduril combines modern software expertise with a rapid and differentiated approach to hardware development and manufacturing.

“We’re incredibly excited to welcome this amazing investment from Anduril Industries. Mississippi continues to set records and make history as great companies like Anduril discover that our state is an ideal location for their production needs,” Governor Tate Reeves said. “We have a remarkably strong and versatile workforce and an ideal business environment for growth. This is exactly why our presence continues to grow in the space and defense communities.”

The Mississippi Development Authority is assisting the project through the Mississippi Flexible Tax Incentive program. MDA also is assisting with building and site improvements. AccelerateMS and Stone County are also aiding with the project.

“We are proud to produce solid rocket motors at scale in Mississippi. Our advanced manufacturing process for solid rocket motors is already faster and more efficient than existing techniques used across the industry,” Anduril Industries Senior Vice President Neil Thurgood said. “By expanding and modernizing the Mississippi Solid Rocket Motor Complex, we will be able to dramatically increase production capacity for solid rocket motors, expanding supply to replenish U.S. and allied stockpiles of munitions to maintain credible deterrence.”

To support production growth, Anduril is now actively seeking to fill the 60 jobs being created by the expansion. The company hopes to have those spots filled by the end of the year.
