Plant Expansion Would Create 2,100 Construction Jobs

April 24, 2015

A $1.4 billion expansion to an ethylene plant in Louisiana would create 2,100 construction jobs. 

Shintech, a subsidiary of Japan-based Shin-Etsu Chemical, is planning the expansion to the plant and is projected to raise the company's total investment at the facility to $4.7 billion.

This is the third expansion since 2008. Construction is expected to start in the second quarter of this year and be finished in 2018.
