2015 is off to a great start with the location of IBM's Application Development and Innovation Center, Boise Cascade's expansion, CenturyLink's expansion of its headquarters with the opening of their new Technology Center of Excellence, and Monster Moto's establishment of their new headquarters and manufacturing facility in Ruston, La.
In 2014, NLEP and its partners successfully completed 14 new economic development projects, which could potentially generate up to 1,269 new jobs and up to $108.6 million in capital investment.
In 2013, NLEP completed 11 new economic development projects, which could potentially generate up to 2,570 new jobs and more than $174.3 million in capital investment. NLEP ended 2013 with 60 open and active projects in our prospect pipeline.
These projects represented just some of the expansion and location projects that happened in North Louisiana from 2011 to present. NLEP always works projects in partnership with state or local partners.
