Tupelo, Miss. Manufacturing Plant

EMS maintains a 367,000 ft2 state-of-the-art manufacturing and test facility in the Tupelo, Miss. area.

In 2005, EMS opened a manufacturing and test facility in Shannon, Miss., a suburb of Tupelo. Since then, GA has invested more than $38 million in the plant and equipment. Several expansions bring the total manufacturing space in Mississippi to 367,000 ft2.

EMS designs and fabricates linear motors, superconducting and conventional rotating motors up to 15 MW, power inverters up to 34 MVA, high-voltage DC power distribution systems, electromagnetic railguns, and other energy conversion, distribution, and storage systems in the Tupelo facility.

Much of the work at the Mississippi facility is for the U.S. Navy, including advanced launch and recovery systems for aircraft carriers, including the new Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78). State-of-the-art manufacturing equipment includes large robotics, a wide range of electrical motor winding equipment, a nine-foot diameter vacuum-pressure resin impregnation tank and system, a full range of computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining and milling equipment, and multi-megawatt test capability.

All EMS facilities have an ISO 9001:2008-certified quality management system. The Mississippi facility also holds a MILSTD- 2037 Sealed Insulation System Certification.
