ACKERMAN — Mississippi Forge, a manufacturer of pipe fittings, will locate a plant in Ackerman in North Mississippi.

Mississippi Forge is wholly owned and managed by Jigar Kadakia, current CEO of Britex Engineering. The company has a similar forging plant located in India that produces stainless steel flanges.
