NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Great River Industries will expand in Natchez and move its corporate headquarters there from Memphis, Tennessee, creating 25 jobs.

The company announced Friday that it will invest $4 million to add 12,000 square feet of space, adding to its current 150 employees.

Great River Industries makes storage tanks and industrial pressure vessels from steel plate. It also plans to make ductwork and air quality control equipment for utilities and the energy industry.

The Mississippi Development Authority is providing $500,000 for a headquarters building and $25,000 to help upgrade existing facilities. Adams County is giving the company property tax breaks estimated at $570,000 over 10 years.

Great River Industries, owned by NGS Investments, opened as Enersteel in 2010. The company has expanded at least twice before since opening.
