The owner of a north Louisiana facility that makes electric utility vehicles has told his employees he plans to move the company and its jobs from Ouachita Parish to Georgia in two months.

Stealth Manufacturing owner Greg Block gave employees 60 days notice on Wednesday.

However, the state will continue working with the company to try to reverse the decision.

Block bought Stealth Manufacturing from its local owners in January.

He said last week he needed $2 million in state incentives to stay, the newspaper reported.

Stealth has about 50 employees at its 82,000-square-foot facility at the Ouachita Industrial Park.
