Palazzo wraps up tour of Pine Belt

ELLISVILLE – As part of his recent tour around the Pine Belt, Congressman Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., paid a visit Thursday to the GE Aviation composites factory in Ellisville.

Palazzo was given a brief tour of the facility — which will celebrate its first anniversary Wednesday — by Ellisville plant leader Nate Beach during his last stop of the Pine Belt tour. Earlier in the week, Palazzo visited St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and Wesley Medical Center in Hattiesburg, as well as Pearl River Community College in Poplarville.

“(Palazzo) is somebody that GE has worked with on a lot of things, and he’s a big supporter of GE,” Beach said. “He was here at the grand opening, and he wanted to come back and see all the changes in the facility.”
