WLOX in Mississippi reports on Relativity’s commitment to its 3D printed rocket program, which will be hiring 190 more people in the near future.
Additionally, “the aerospace manufacturer has signed a 20-year lease at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Hancock County, Mississippi.” Lead Data and Controls System Engineer for Relativity Jon Oliver returns to Mississippi.
As Oliver explains, “to be able to come back home to South Mississippi and be able to work on some revolutionary and game-changing ideas in the aerospace industry is pretty amazing. From a professional level, I get to work on some amazing technology and solve some extremely interesting problems. But from a personal level, we’re doing this in my hometown area, and so it’s really great to see such innovation occurring here locally.”
Relativity plans to “expand testing facilities, and in the next five years, build its 3D printing rocket factory.” As a spokesman for them explains: “we are looking for those engineers and technicians who are hard workers, think outside the box, and are looking to be in a new industry, expand our opportunities, and redesign the way we think about aerospace.”
Indeed, Relativity is committing itself to the area. Their growth here “brings a $59 million investment to Hancock County.”
