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

The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project to help transport equipment to the facility.
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.
