Intralox will expand its global headquarters in Harahan and Hammond, Louisiana. The company plans to add a total of 80 associates to its workforce.
“Intralox is expanding rapidly,” said Intralox President Edel Blanks. “Our partnership with Louisiana Economic Development supports our immediate and long-term workforce needs. Their creative and impactful approach to workforce development has had a positive impact upon our business.”
To support the expansions at Laitram facilities in Harahan and Hammond, the State of Louisiana provided the services of LED FastStart, a competitive incentive program which provides customized employee recruitment, screening and training. Intralox will also utilize the state’s Quality Jobs program.
“Intralox is one of the most innovative companies not only in Louisiana, but in America,” said Michael Hecht, president and CEO of Greater New Orleans, Inc. “Our region is fortunate to be home to such a perennial engine for jobs, wealth, and ideas. We look forward to continuing to support Laitram and Intralox.”
A global conveyance solutions leader, Intralox specializes in innovative technologies, including modular plastic conveyor belting, ThermoDrive technology, DirectDrive spiral systems, and ARB equipment. Intralox, a division of Laitram, operates assembly and distribution centers in Australia, Brazil, China, India, Japan, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
