Governor Bobby Jindal is expected to announce the location of a new polymers plant near Plaquemine at a conference at 2:30 p.m. Friday (June 19) at the Courthouse.

Iberville Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Hank Grace, who has been working on the project, said Louisiana Secretary of Economic Development Stephen Moret would accompany the governor to the meeting in the Iberville Parish Council Chambers.

SNF Inc., a privately held company that manufactures water-soluble polymers, is expected to build a $350 million facility that would hire a permanent workforce of 500, the company’s site selection specialist told the POST/SOUTH in April.
