BATON ROUGE- A new glass manufacturing facility is coming to Baton Rouge.

Today, Governor Bobby Jindal announced Glaz-Tech will make a $4 million investment to bring their new facility to the capital city.

The new facility will create 50 direct jobs and 97 indirect jobs.

Glaz-Tech recently acquired a 25,000-square-foot manufacturing building on Dual Street in Baton Rouge, where the company is completing renovation work and building a 15,000-square-foot addition.

The company will begin hiring and initial operations by September and will complete its expansion project within the next six months.

Glaz-Tech produces tempered safety and insulated glass for residential and commercial construction markets, with a variety of specialty products for mirrors, shower doors, and beveled, decorative surfaces, as well as windows, doors and enclosures.
