ClearEdge Wholesale Glass to expand in Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE - ClearEdge Wholesale Glass is expanding its manufacturing operations in Louisiana.
Gov. Bobby Jindal and company owners, Brian and Dana LaBorde, said Monday that ClearEdge is investing $2.65 million to renovate a 41,000-square-foot facility in Baton Rouge, where it will relocate its current operations from New Orleans.
ClearEdge will create 120 new direct jobs at the new facility, with an average salary of $39,300, plus benefits. Additionally, the company is retaining all 20 employees from its New Orleans facility, with all existing employees agreeing to move to the Baton Rouge location.
ClearEdge Wholesale Glass was founded in 2009 in New Orleans. The new facility will provide nearly three times the area for the company's manufacturing operations, allowing the company to keep up with customer demand and conduct new fabrication techniques.
