WBRZ reported that with an USD 18 million capital investment, a Louisiana-based steel company is expanding to a second site. Governor Edwards announced that Southland Steel Fabricators, Inc. is creating new fabrication and coating lines through a USD 18 million capital investment at the former Bradken foundry in Amite. The project will create 70 new direct jobs, with an average annual salary of USD 46,000, plus benefits, and retain 176 existing jobs that are based at the company’s St. Helena Parish headquarters and manufacturing site.

Gov. Edwards said that “Since 1986, Southland Steel has built a homegrown business in St. Helena Parish into one of the fastest-growing steel fabricators in the nation.”

He added that “Not only is Southland Steel growing, but it is now helping to revive the Amite foundry that succumbed to difficult challenges during the oil and gas downturn earlier in the decade. This is a company that has focused its fabrication on technology, training and quality control, and those efforts have produced an outstanding workforce for the future.”
