Investment brings new jobs

PASCAGOULA, Miss. - A $10 million investment by ship maintenance and repair company ST Engineering Halter Marine and Offshore Inc. (STEHMO) will be used to expand and bring 100 jobs to Pascagoula. STEHMO, along with its sister company VT Halter Marine, is growing as a result of recent market opportunities. The expansion will enable the company to perform new commercial repair work for larger ships and oil platforms that require greater size and lifting capacity. The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance to offset the cost of dredging adjacent to the STEHMO site. (Source: WLOX, 02/18/20)
