Zagis USA has opened its new $20 million open-ended cotton spinning mill at a 30-acre site in Lacassine, east of Lake Charles.

Jefferson Davis Parish officials said the 128,000-square-foot facility will mean 60-plus jobs and a multimillion investment in the parish.

The Lacassine mill is the first of two mills that Zagis USA plans to build in Louisiana. The location of the second mill has not yet been announced.
