BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – A company that makes liquid level gauges is moving its manufacturing and headquarters facility from Houston to Baton Rouge.
Jogler LLC announced the plans Friday at an event with Gov. Bobby Jindal.
The move will happen in November.
The governor's office says the relocation will create 60 new direct jobs in the capital city, averaging a $59,300 annual salary, but those won't all be available immediately. The jobs will be filled within the next 10 years.
Jogler manufactures liquid level indicators, sight flow indicators, magnetic level indicators and level controls for various industries.
The company will receive tax breaks from the state, along with assistance in worker training.
