NEW ORLEANS–Agrico Sales will build a 56,000-square-foot manufacturing facility here to produce conveyor and shiploader systems for the dry bulk shipping industry. The project will create 25 new jobs, as well as relocate 35 existing jobs from Bridge City, LA.

 “This reinvestment in our state by Agrico Sales is a testament to the strong business climate, skilled manufacturing workforce and world-class infrastructure here in Louisiana,” said Governor Bobby Jindal, in a statement. “Not only is this innovative company developing conveyor belts for ports to adapt to an ever-growing global economy, but it’s also creating great manufacturing jobs for Louisianians right here in New Orleans. Agrico Sales joins a long list of manufacturers who have invested in our state and are helping us lead the South in manufacturing.”
