Texas co. plans plastic RR tie plant in Springhill

Updated:

SPRINGHILL, La. (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal says a Texas company plans a $20 million plant to make plastic railroad ties and other railroad products near Springhill.

A news release says IntegriCo Composites also will move its corporate headquarters from Temple, Texas, to Webster Parish.

The company plans to hire 300 people with an average salary of $35,000 a year, plus benefits.

It's leasing 178,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 12 adjacent acres from the North Webster Parish Industrial District.

The state and parish are offering incentives valued at $10 million.

The state is offering $2.5 million in infrastructure improvements and the same amount in performance-based awards.

The parish is providing a 10-year performance-based grant of $500,000 annually to support IntegriCo's lease of manufacturing equipment at the industrial park.
