Board of Supervisors President Sandy Kane Smith said Monday that the company is having to leave the Stennis location “very soon” due to the imminent demolition of the building it occupied. Smith said that order came under the Obama administration.

Smith said he struck up a relationship with Carl Liberty, who is a managing member of the company.

“He has a home in the Midwest and one here.  He wanted Power Dynamics to remain here even though there was the potential of moving to Louisiana,” Smith said.

The specific location where the company will relocate is yet to be finalized.

Liberty said locating the company in Pearl River County helps maintain his employee base, which has worked at Stennis.

“I know I have at least six graduates of PRCC working for me now,” he added.

Liberty also noted his employees will add to the local economy.

“I know they spend $200,000 a year on lunches at Stennis,” he said. “That is now going to be spent in Pearl River (County) businesses, not to mention buying gas.”

“A lot of good is set to come to Pearl River County from Power Dynamics,” Smith said.

While he is working out the details concerning a new location, he said he “can’t imagine” the company will not make the move to Pearl River County.

“I have been forthcoming about liking Mississippi as opposed to some other states,” Liberty said.

Liberty is also an owner of Redox Pipe, which is a manufacturer of a variety of corrosive-free pipes used in the oil industry.

Redox will move to a building located at the intersection of Bennett Apartment Road and Highway 11 near Nicholson, Liberty said.

“We are in the process now of transferring the equipment from where it was originally located in Seattle,” Liberty said. “As where they were just producing the pipe, we will be doing complete constructed projects. We have one ready to start and another one is looking very good for us. We are looking forward to getting started.
