Seemann Composites Inc. will expand operations in Gulfport and create 42 more jobs to accommodate a contract with the U.S. Navy, according to the Mississippi Development Authority.
Located in the Bayou Bernard Industrial Park, Seemann Composites will invest $4.6 million to construct a 25,600-square-foot building to produce bow domes for the Navy’s Ohio Class Replacement Submarine Program.
Seemann has 105 employees. The company expects to begin construction on the facility this year, with initial production slated to begin in late 2017.
The Mississippi Development Authority provided a $700,000 grant in support of the expansion for site preparation and infrastructure needs.
Seemann Composites was founded in 1987 and developed the technology of vacuum infusion, which is used worldwide.
