Welcome to Mississippi Silicon

Mississippi Silicon is the first new domestic provider of silicon metal built in the past 40 years and produces approximately 10% of all silicon metal used in the United States. 

In that time, similar plants have been built all around the world. We have made great progress since our startup in late 2015, and our facility competes head-to-head with facilities in Europe, South Africa, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia and Brazil. We sell our product to customers that supply thousands of consumer, industrial and commercial markets in North America and around the world.


Silicon is a semi-conductive metalloid element and a crucial component in thousands of products, from electronics to steel to automotive components. 


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. 


Mississippi Silicon invested over $200 million in their Burnsville, Mississippi production facility.


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 Governor Phil Bryant.
