General Atomics is relocating some product lines from its Electromagnetic Systems Group to Shannon, Miss.

The company and Gov. Phil Bryant made the announcement Monday in Shannon. General Atomics said it will invest $11 million and create 80 new jobs.

The relocated product lines provide equipment and services to the defense, nuclear, oil and energy storage industries. They will locate in a vacant building in the Tupelo/Lee Industrial Park South. The 87,650-square-foot facility joins GA’s existing campus.
