LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A Lowndes County steel processor’s expansion is a step closer to being completed.

Lowndes County supervisors opened bids today on $1 million worth of projects for Mississippi Steel Processing. Companies from Walls, Okolona and Hattiesburg were the low bidders on a rail spur, access road and loading pad at the plant next to Severstal Steel.

Pruitt Enterprises of Walls won a $112,668.50 contract for a rail spur, Osborn Construction of Okolona won a $716,354.04 contract for an access road and Continental Rails of Hattiesburg won a $167,587.90 contract for a loading pad.

The $6 million expansion already has created 25 new jobs and will mean about 15 more once completed early next year.

Mississippi Steel now employs about 75 people cutting raw steel into products for other manufacturers.
