GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Harrison County maker of resin composite parts plans to invest $4.6 million and hire 42 workers after winning a U.S. Navy contract.

Seemann Composites President Bill Seemann said Tuesday the company will make bow domes for new submarines, adding to its current 105 employees. Seemann will build a 26,000-square-foot building in Gulfport’s Bayou Bernard Industrial Park.

Mississippi Development Authority spokeswoman Tammy Craft says MDA is giving Seemann $700,000 to help prepare the site and build infrastructure. She says local governments don’t anticipate property tax breaks. Craft says Seemann also qualifies to receive up to 4 percent of state income tax withholding from worker paychecks over 10 years, as long as new jobs pay more than $37,667 a year, on average. That could be worth more than $600,000 to Seemann.
