Existing Clusters

Harrison County is bordered on the west by Hancock County and NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center, on the east by industrialized Jackson County with Northrop Grumman, and to the north by rapidly developing Stone County. This strategic central position is largely responsible for Harrison County’s diversified economy.

Casinos, shipbuilding and pharmaceuticals are among the industries responsible for the county’s prosperity. They have created thousands of jobs and have encouraged related industries to also locate to the area. The shipbuilding industry, for instance, has attracted composite technology, which will also support the growing field of aerospace.

When addressing industry within Harrison County, it is important to note the county’s central position along the I-10 Technology Corridor – an urbanized region that spans portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Many of the industries along this corridor are interrelated and interdependent, and the counties of the Gulf Coast work together to promote and develop their industries.

The five primary industry sectors along the I-10 Corridor, which have become key target industries for Harrison County, are Aerospace, Advanced Materials, Shipbuilding, Geospatial and Marine Science.
