ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - Georgia-Pacific's Port Hudson mill will be undergoing a $300 million upgrade over the next two years.
The Atlanta-based company will be spending the money to improve one of its tissue-paper making machines and add equipment.
The investment will allow the mill to retain its nearly 1,000 workers.
Engineering on the project will begin immediately. Officials expect the upgrades to be ready for operation in 2012.
"This is a great win for East Baton Rouge Parish, our forest products industry and our entire state," said Governor Jindal. "Georgia-Pacific has long been one of the largest, most important employers in the Capital Region and this $300 million modernization project will ensure that GP continues to be a major contributor to our economy for years to come."
400 construction jobs will be created as a result of the investment.
