Haley Barbour on Homeland Security

Republican MS Governor


Defense industry is economic bright spot for MS

An economic bright spot is our defense industry. Navistarís new IMG facility at West Point employs some 800. Northrup Grummanís shipyards have just won new multi-billion dollar ship contracts. General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Rolls Royce: our traditional defense contractors are strong. And weíve added some new defense industries, such as EADís American Eurocopter & RTI International Metals. The defense industry, like energy, is not subject to the same economic variables as most other sectors.
