RICHLAND — Siemens Energy Inc. has added 40 new jobs at the central Mississippi plant where it makes high-voltage transmission equipment.
Mississippi Development Authority says in a news release that the jobs are for the production of transformers. Employment is now about 400 at the plant in Richland.
Gov. Phil Bryant and other officials gathered at the plant yesterday to mark its 40th year of operations. Siemens manufactures power circuit breakers, voltage regulators and transformers, and it distributes surge arresters and insulators.
MDA says it provided assistance to Siemens in 2007 for an expansion to assemble and test a new circuit breaker, a project that created more than 20 jobs.
