'Shaw' sign removed from iconic post near Essen/I-10
BATON ROUGE- Crews began removing signs from the former Shaw compound on Essen Lane Wednesday, after a multi-billion dollar deal to purchase the business was closed.
CB&I completed its acquisition after signing documents at the Secretary of State's Office earlier in the day. The move means the Capital City will no longer be the headquarters for a Fortune 500 company.
CB&I will operate Shaw as a separate business unit under the name CB&I Shaw. Headquarters functions at the company's Baton Rouge offices have shifted to The Woodlands, Texas, where CB&I is based.
