Ocean Springs Plant To Remain Open

After weeks of bad economic news in Jackson County, many people are looking for some good news. And American Identity in Ocean Springs is leading the way. Just weeks after announcing that American Identity would close, mayor Seren Ainsworth now says the plant will remain open for at least the next several months.

That saves the jobs of the more than 120 people who work at the plant. American Identity, which was formerly the Swingster Plant, makes logo jackets for several companies. Company officials could not be reached for comment about the decision to stay open.
