PASCAGOULA — Mississippi Phosphates Corp. is closing its administrative headquarters in Madison and consolidating all operations at Pascagoula manufacturing facility.

The plant has been in Pascagoula since 1958 and consists of two sulfuric acid units, a phosphoric acid unit and a DAP granulation unit that can produce 850,000 tons a year. The sulfuric acid units have the capacity to produce sulfuric acid sufficient for annual DAP production of about 600,000 to 640,000 tons.
