Intralox Announces Hammond Plant Expansion

Intralox has announced the expansion of moulding and assembly operations at its Hammond facility in Louisiana, US. 

The total cost of the expansion is said to be USD 60 million, and will include the creation of 425 direct jobs and 582 indirect jobs. A total of more than 1,000 new jobs in Louisiana’s southeast region are expected to be created by this initiative. 

To be completed by the end of 2022, this marks the third expansion project of the company in the last four years, following which the plant’s total footprint will increase to over 400,000 square feet while increasing belting output by 50 percent.

Edel Blanks, President, Intralox, said, “This expansion is critical to support the strong growth we’ve experienced in the last few years. With the new facility, we will rapidly increase our production and assembly capacity. We look forward to expanding our local workforce with the added benefit of meeting the increased demand of our customers around the world.”

John Bel Edwards, Governor of Louisiana, said, “I am proud to celebrate this new expansion of Intralox’s manufacturing facility in Hammond and to celebrate this company's 50 outstanding years in operation, right here in Louisiana. What better way to commemorate this milestone anniversary than with a renewed commitment to our state and its people. The 425 direct new Intralox jobs in Hammond will result in increased economic activity, and tremendous success for this homegrown company.” (TT)
