Baton Rouge Company To Build $10M Headquarters
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal says a Baton Rouge-based industrial equipment supplier plans to spend $10 million to build a new headquarters in the city.
Jindal's office announced Tuesday that DMC Carter Chambers Inc., a subsidiary of Pon Holdings BV, plans to consolidate its corporate office in Baton Rouge with its operations in Gonzales and Prairieville and build a 90,000-square-foot facility.
The project is expected to create 80 new jobs over the next nine years. Construction is expected to begin this year and be completed by fall 2013.
Jindal said in a statement that the company considered moving its headquarters to Houston, where its parent company is based, before deciding to stay in Baton Rouge.
