MISA Metal Processing locating operations in Forest, Miss.

JACKSON, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from Mississippi Development Authority   

Officials from MISA Metal Processing, Inc., supplier of coils and slit steel to Tier 1 automotive suppliers, announce the company is locating operations in Forest, Miss. The project is a $9.8 million company investment and will initially create 11 jobs.

MMP is locating in Forest as a supplier to UNIPRES, a company that produces parts for the automotive industry. UNIPRES' capabilities include the stamping, machining and assembly of metal parts for the main portions of automotive body structures and pressing molded components and precision automatic transmission parts.

“I am proud to welcome MISA Metal Processing as the newest member of Mississippi's business community, and I thank the MMP team for providing these new job opportunities for the residents of Scott County,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “The partnership between MMP and UNIPRES will help ensure both companies' success for many more years while further strengthening the state's automotive industry, which has seen tremendous growth over the last decade and is positioned for continued growth well into the future.”

“MMP is very excited to be a part of the community of Forest and Scott County,” said MMP President Dan Combs.  “MMP is fortunate to have support by customers like UNIPRES, and we look forward to supporting them in Forest.  MDA has made the process of locating in Forest very easy.  We already feel a part of the Forest community.”

The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for public infrastructure improvements. The City of Forest and Scott County provided assistance, as well.

"MDA appreciates its teamwork with the city of Forest, Scott County and Mid-Mississippi Development District to bring MISA Metal Processing to Forest,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough. “MISA Metal Processing is a great company investing in our state and providing good jobs for Mississippians.”

Marubeni-Itochu Steel America Inc. has combined three of its subsidiary metal processing companies into one consolidated company, which it wholly owns.  MISA Metal Processing was formed from the previous MISA Metal Blanking, Inc., MISA Metal Processing of Kentucky, Inc., and MISA Metal Processing of Tennessee, Inc.  MMP is headquartered in Portland, Tennessee.
