Infrastructure

The Golden Triangle encompasses three communities with ongoing infrastructure development and improvement.

A multi-modal destination, the region boasts heavy-duty water, rail, road and air methods for product and source movement.

The Golden Triangle Regional Airport is Mississippi’s third largest commercial airport with three inbound and outbound flights daily to Atlanta.

From Columbus, Starkville and West Point, local highways connect to I-20, I-22 Corridor and I-55.

Three ports located on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway provide direct access to the Port of Mobile to the South and Ohio River Valley to the North.

Three industrial parks located in Columbus and West Point are served by Kansas City Southern Railway’s connectivity to the East and West Coasts, Canada and Mexico.

The region boasts three Tennessee Valley Authority-certified megasites, two-shovel-ready industrial parks in Clay and Lowndes counties and one new park under development in Oktibbeha County. The Golden Triangle has the most robust and redundant power in North Mississippi.

Each industrial park possess infrastructure to supply sufficient water and wastewater capacity to most industrial projects.

Natural gas for the Golden Triangle Region is provided by Atmos Energy.  Atmos Energy is the largest provider of natural gas in MS, with over 250,000 customers in MS.  Atmos brings natural gas into the Golden Triangle Region from several different transmission companies creating a more reliable source of natural gas for their customers.  The company currently serves multiple manufacturing companies in the area and has expanded their infrastructure to accommodate future growth.

  • The PACCAR Engine Company continues to enjoy great success in hiring, training, and keeping local talent. From Assembly Operators associates, Machining Operators, to Craft Technicians, we have experienced a positive and dedicated workforce willing to learn new skills. Attracting quality new associates has not been an issue with us, but we face the same nation-wide challenges in finding associates with skilled trades. We are pleased for the results we have achieved by locating our facilities here.

  • The workforce in Mississippi is exceptional. I’ve hired many veterans that worked in aviation during their military careers and moved back home to the Golden Triangle area. Airbus was able to use their skill sets and put them to work building multi-million dollar aircraft. The training that EMCC offers was so valuable to us, because they enabled our people to be trained in a variety of disciplines. This allowed for some of our people that had no aviation skills to be trained and hired as apprentices and grew our work force development program. People drive up to 75 miles to work for Airbus, demonstrating the work ethic and commitment of the men and women who live in Mississippi. We are very grateful for the caliber of people we are able to work with.
