Rolls-Royce North America Inc. to Close Facility in Mississippi

Rolls-Royce North America Inc. is closing the foundry at its Pascagoula, Miss., ship propeller manufacturing plant and expects to lose 24 skilled workers of the 47 employees there. The downsizing in the casting or foundry side will take place over the next 18 months, with plans to reduce as many of the jobs as possible by attrition. There is simply not the quantity of Naval contracts coming through the facility any more. The business is down. The upside is that they still have the machine aspect of the business, the Machining Center of Excellence. They won't pour the castings for propellers there anymore, but they will bring them in and machine them there.
