“On behalf of the Owl’s Head Alloys team, I would like to thank Governor Reeves, MDA Executive Director Bill Cork and the entire Golden Triangle Development team for the professionalism and urgency that has been provided at every step in the process of locating the new OHA facility in West Point, Mississippi. The “pro-business” approach extended to OHA is a model for the country. We have been greeted with open arms and enthusiasm at every step since day one,” OHA President Michael J. Boyle said.

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for building improvements. The City of West Point and Clay County are providing local tax abatement assistance.

“Owl’s Head Alloys’ decision to do business in Mississippi is generating nearly 70 new jobs and an impressive investment of more than $29 million that will service local industry and provide sustainable materials in multiple industrial markets. This is precisely the kind of development that can offer economic stability and future investment opportunities for years to come. MDA is excited to welcome this new venture to Mississippi, and we look forward to the many benefits it will bring to Clay County’s thriving economy,” Mississippi Development Authority Executive Director Bill Cork noted.

This investment and the job creation underscores the strength of our local economy and the collaborative spirit within our communities.
