Raytheon broke ground in Forest, Mississippi this week. The defense contractor is expanding their footprint and will be investing $100 million to support the country’s national defense.

The new facility will serve as a hub to test and produce S-band radars, many of which will be used on new ships built by Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula and will bring dozens of new high-tech jobs to Mississippi.

“We’re mighty lucky to have a community partner like Raytheon here in Scott County,” said Representative Tom Miles. “The fact that they are willing to invest so heavily to expand their Scott County operation means they recognize we’ve got some of the most hard-working smart people right here who can get the job done!”
