Great Southern Wood Preserving will invest $5.9 million in expanding its remanufacturing facility in Mansura, La.
It will add four new production lines, increasing the facility’s capacity and allowing for the manufacture of components used in the oil field and for storm relief and mitigation. In addition, manufacture of supplemental decking components, such as rails and balusters, will shift to the Mansura plant from facilities outside of the state.
“Our expansion in Mansura is phase two of the long-range plan we had in mind when we began operations here in late 2011,” said president and CEO Jimmy Rane. “With the growth of various manufacturing segments in Louisiana, our goal is to be able to support these industries by providing both a greater volume of products as well as more variety in the products they need to continue their growth. We’re looking forward to getting underway in early 2023.”
Construction is forecast to start in January and be complete in October.
