$900 Million Steel Mill coming to Shreveport


LINK

quote:

On Friday, Governor Bobby Jindal and Benteler Steel/Tube CEO Matthias Jaeger announced a two-phase construction project costing $900-million. The first facility will make seamless steel tubes, while the second will work as a straight steel mill.



quote:

chose Louisiana because we are in the heart of America's energy corridor, have one of the best business climates in the country, have a world-class transportation infrastructure, and because we have the best workers in the world. This project will bring valuable foreign direct investment to Louisiana, help increase our country's energy independence, and create thousands of new career opportunities for Louisianians."


quote:

"This is a huge win for our state as it will be one of the largest industrial projects in the history of northwest Louisiana that will change the face of this area's economy," Governor Jindal said.



This is great news!

I'm glad Shreveport is finally getting the recognition it deserves for producing some of the best steel in the world. If you've never sampled Shreveport's steel...then my friend you haven't sampled steel.

I spent a good amount of time reviewing title to land by the port. Lots of oil money flowing over there
