WAFB reported that Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards announced last week that Stupp Corp will invest USD 22 million to upgrade its two steel pipe manufacturing plants in Baton Rouge. He said “This USD 22 million expansion is welcome news for north Baton Rouge, for the capital region, and for the state. To be successful, Louisiana’s energy industry relies on quality products and performance by the oilfield services sector. Stupp Corp. has a long and respected history of providing products and services for the oil and gas industry for many years. As the company looks to improve its efficiency in this competitive sector, this expansion will create 128 good-paying jobs. Louisiana’s positive business climate and our talented manufacturing workforce are helping to make this possible.”

The expansion will create 128 new direct jobs with an average salary of USD 60,567, plus benefits, while keeping 338 existing jobs at the facility in Baton Rouge. Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will also result in 296 indirect jobs, for a total of 424 new job for the Baton Rouge area. Stupp says the expansion will also create 93 temporary construction jobs.

The company has operated in north Baton Rouge since 1952 and provides custom pipe for the transport of oil and natural gas, along with other energy services.
