WYESCO TO BE ACQUIRED BY FINLAND FIRM.

Baton Rouge, La. (September 22, 2010) – The Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) announced today that the Metso Corporation of Finland will expand its global U.S. presence by acquiring WYESCO of Louisiana, L.L.C., in Slaughter. 

For details see Business page.

 
“Bayou State’s expansion into East Feliciana shows the viability of the Capital Region’s lumber industry, while providing good jobs and restoring an existing facility back to commercial use,” said Adam Knapp, BRAC’s President and CEO.  “We want to thank Bayou State for continuing to invest in the area and our regional partners for helping bring this project to reality.”
 
The company manufactures rough, industrial lumber used mainly in the oil production and refining industry sectors, especially for offshore applications.  They also produce a finite amount of “grade” lumber, mostly cypress, for the construction industry.  The Netterville mill, which will now be called the Jackson Lumber Mill, has been idle for approximately eighteen months.  The potential expansion was identified through a retention visit with the company in February, 2010 by officials from BRAC, Louisiana Economic Development, and the Pointe Coupee Chamber of Commerce.
 
“We are pleased to be in a position to get the Jackson mill operational again, and we are anxious to expand our capabilities to better service our customers,” said Bayou State Lumber’s Magruder Hazlip.  “We are grateful to the Baton Rouge Area Chamber retention and expansion group, and the East Feliciana Chamber of Commerce for their help in securing the facility and for walking us through the application process for state enterprise zone incentives.  We look forward to beginning operations in Jackson very soon.”
 
“We are certainly glad that Bayou State Lumber is coming to East Feliciana Parish,” said Larry Thomas of the East Feliciana Economic Development District.  “They are an excellent fit for our parish.”
