A ground breaking ceremony was held in Scott Friday for a company called National Oil Well Varco.
The new facility, which will be located in the 800 block of the south I-10 Frontage Road, will consist of two 14,000 square foot buildings which will house offices and a training facility.
Director of Information Technology, Carl Lacombe, says the location was a huge selling point when it came to choosing where to build the new facility.
"What's great about this particular location is the proximity to the interstate, the ease of getting in and out, the high visibility that we'll have here, that we'll enjoy here"
The business is expected to bring more than 60 new jobs to the area. National Oil Well Varco provides mechanical components for land and offshore drilling rigs as well as servicing for rigs.
