WLOX Editorial: Congratulations to Ingalls Shipbuilding

Posted: Updated:

Our congratulations to Ingalls Shipbuilding, to all the current 11 thousand workers and those who came before you as you celebrate 75 years in business. Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula has a proud heritage of quality shipbuilding.

The ships launched from the Ingalls shipyard become a part of this great nation's Navy or Coast Guard. Ingalls is the state's largest private employer with an annual payroll of three quarters of a billion dollars. The economic impact is tremendous for Mississippi as the payroll rolls over into the community and hundreds of millions of dollars are spent with other Mississippi suppliers and businesses.

Ingalls is a good citizen in the community as well, investing in science and math programs for students. We wish Ingalls continued success at 75 years and counting.
