Southland Steel to add second site in Amite, La. in $18 million expansion

Southland Steel Fabricators Inc. said it will spend $18 million expanding to a second Louisiana site in Amite, a move that officials say will create 70 new jobs over the next several years. The Greensburg-based company will create new fabrication and coating lines at the former Bradken foundry in Amite. The company also will retain 176 jobs at its St. Helena Parish headquarters and manufacturing site, Gov. John Bel Edwards’ administration said Friday. Bradken announced a major expansion of its Amite facilities in 2011 along with then-Gov. Bobby Jindal, a move that was expected to add 171 new jobs. Baton Rouge Advocate
