– Gov. Haley Barbour announced the retention of more than 200 jobs at Delphi Automotive, a leading global supplier of electronics and technologies for the automotive industry.  The company has confirmed it will invest approximately $15 million to enhance its Brookhaven, Miss., manufacturing facility, in support of securing business with a major automotive customer.“I am delighted Delphi has looked to its Brookhaven facility to supply this new contract,” Gov. Haley Barbour said. “Delphi has been a key corporate citizen in southwest Mississippi for more than 30 years. The company’s decision to further invest in its Brookhaven plant is great news for southwest Mississippi.”The Mississippi Development Authority worked closely with local officials in support of the project, providing funding through the Momentum Mississippi incentives program and the Job Protection Grant Program.  In addition, the Lincoln County Industrial Development Foundation and Entergy Mississippi provided funding for this project.“The commitment and support from the local union, plant management and local and state government helps position Delphi to effectively compete while maintaining our manufacturing operations in Brookhaven,” said Jim Spencer, President of Delphi Packard Electrical/Electronic Architecture. “The investment is a necessary element to continue Delphi’s delivery of innovative and technologically-advanced products and services.”Delphi’s Brookhaven facility has been in operation since 1977.  The company’s investment will result in the purchase of new equipment and enhancements to the site in order to manufacture a new version of the printed circuit boards currently manufactured at the plant. Delphi plans to begin production of the new product in March 2013.“From its Brookhaven location, this global business will produce technologically-advanced, environmentally-friendly electrical centers to power the vehicles of the future,” said Leland Speed, executive director of MDA.  “I am proud MDA was able to support this project, which will retain more than 200 workers currently employed at the facility and will continue to benefit the southwest Mississippi economy in the years ahead.”Delphi is a global supplier of electronics and technologies for automotive, commercial vehicle and other market segments.  The company operates major technical centers, manufacturing sites and customer support facilities in 30 countries and delivers real-world innovations that make products smarter, safer, more powerful and more efficient.  To learn more, visit the company’s website, Credit: The Daily Leader, Brookhaven, MS]]]]> ]]>
