Welcome To Mississippi Silicon: The United States’ first new silicon metal production facility in 40 years.

Thank you for your interest in Mississippi Silicon (MS) and for visiting our website.  We have made great progress since our startup in late 2015, and now produce approximately 10% of all silicon metal used in the United States.  Mississippi Silicon is the first new silicon metal production facility to be built in the United States in 40 years. In that time, similar plants have been built all around the world.  Our facility competes head-to-head with facilities in Europe, South Africa, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia and China. We sell our product to customers that supply thousands of consumer, industrial and commercial markets in North America and around the world.


We are proud to be in Burnsville, and to contribute to the growth and development of our region.  We work with Mississippi, Alabama and Kentucky companies that supply our key raw materials, and with Tennessee Valley Authority as a reliable source of competitively-priced electricity.  We are grateful for the support of Tishomingo County and the Mississippi Development Authority, coordinated through the leadership of Gov. Phil Bryant.

Most people encounter products made with silicon metal several times every day, without realizing it.  We invite you to explore our website and learn more about silicon metal, how it is used, and how we produce it.  We look forward to continuing success as a reliable supplier of high-quality metal, and a good source of jobs for the people of northeast Mississippi.  

“We look forward to working with Mississippi Silicon and wish the company many years of success.”

“I congratulate the team at Mississippi Silicon for becoming the state’s newest corporate partner and for choosing Tishomingo County. Mississippi is strongly positioned for growth in advanced manufacturing, and I am pleased to see another company placing its faith in our world-class workforce. We look forward to working with Mississippi Silicon and wish the company many years of success. ”

– Governor Phil Bryant
