Mid-South Extrusion to expand Monroe plant

Mid-South Extrusion will invest $4 million to expand its Monroe plastic film plant, creating 12 new jobs.

The company already employs 130 at its facility.

The latest expansion will establish a ninth production line in Mid-South’s now 200,000-square-foot facility, where the company produces more than 62 million pounds of plastic film for industrial applications annually.

The Louisiana Department of Economic Development crafted a $200,000 Modernization Tax Credit to secure the expansion. Mid-South also is expected to tap the state’s Enterprise Zone and Industrial Tax Exemption programs.
