PLAQUEMINE — A French chemical company has chosen Iberville Parish to be home to a $362 million plant expected to employ more than 500 workers at an average salary of $57,400.
Flanked by state and local government and company officials at the Iberville Parish Courthouse on Friday, Gov. Bobby Jindal announced SNF Floerger SAS had chosen Louisiana — specifically, an 800-acre site off of La. 405 just south of Plaquemine — over locations in three other states.
Jindal touted an LSU study that estimated the plant would create an additional 900 indirect jobs, making it one of the state’s 150 top economic drivers producing $3.7 billion in new state economic output between 2010 and 2025.
Another nice grab for the LED team.
