Job Creation and Partnerships with Local Businesses
The St. James Parish project is expected to create 108 new jobs directly related to the facility. Moreover, the Louisiana Department of Economic Development (“LED”) has estimated the indirect benefit associated with transport, parts production and other auxiliary services, to be equivalent to an additional 374 jobs. Furthermore, in the near term, construction of the facility will create an estimated 900 temporary jobs.
In addition to creating jobs, SLM is committed to building strong partnerships with local businesses. SLM will also continue to source local vendors for development, construction and operational purposes.
