BATON ROUGE - CB&I, the company that bought the Baton Rouge-based Shaw Group, is expanding its presence in the capital city, moving 400 jobs there from out-of-state locations.

The company and Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Monday that CB&I is centralizing a second of its four operating groups in Louisiana.

Jindal says the decision eliminates concerns that CB&I would shrink the former Shaw footprint in Baton Rouge and drastically reduce jobs. The governor says the new jobs will pay salaries averaging from $68,000 to $78,000 a year plus benefits.

CB&I engineers and builds large infrastructure projects.

Jindal says the state is giving the company up to $3.3 million for relocation costs, along with tax breaks for providing high-paying jobs and worker training assistance.
