Southland Steel Fabricators, which provides steel fabrication services
for industrial and heavy commercial markets, will invest $1.5 million
to expand its facilities in Greensburg, Louisiana, according to the
Louisiana governor's office. The company plans to create 35 new jobs
with an average annual salary of $36,000, and will also retain 141
existing positions. Southland will expand its existing headquarters and
fabrication facility by 50,400 square feet and construct an additional
32,000-square-foot building; the company will also add $400,000 worth
of equipment for a new paint shop. Construction is expected to begin
immediately with completion scheduled for early 2010. Southland has
applied for incentives that include a cash rebate, industrial tax
exemption, and loans from the state, all contingent on job creation,
retention, and maintenance of specific payroll levels.
