GARYVILLE - A company that makes environmental services products at a plant in Garyville plans an $18.7 million expansion that will create 22 new jobs.

Louisiana's Economic Development Department said Thursday that Nalco Company's new production facility will produce dry polymers that are used to remove contaminants from waste water.

The department said the average salary for the 22 jobs will be more than $63,000. The office estimates 167 indirect jobs will be created as a result of the expansion. Nalco has 235 existing jobs at the plant, the news release said.

Nalco became part of the cleaning and pest control services company Ecolab in a merger late last year. Ecolab Executive Vice President Jim Seifert and Gov. Bobby Jindal announced the expansion in Garyville.
