VEGA, which is basically a manufacturing company and is known for building different process instrumentation for pharmaceutical and chemical companies announced that they will be arriving on 11th of December in the Ascension Parish.
The River Parishes Community College made the announcement this afternoon and made sure to welcome the Governor John Bel Edwards and President of Parish Kenny Matassa. It is expected that VEGA will be creating about a total of 120 direct jobs with an average annual salary of $52,000 with more benefits.
It is also expected that they will also be creating 40 more indirect jobs which will totally makeup to 160 jobs. These jobs will be a great opportunity for all the Ascension Parish people because they will have a very easy chance to make sure that they grab these opportunities.
People are happy because once a total of 160 jobs are created by VEGA, the unemployment rate is definitely going down making the state very much successful. It is expected that VEGA will be creating a 10,000 square foot facility for manufacturing, which will be spread across 13.5 acres.
The industrial park is located in a very good location and it is just two miles away from Interstate. Vega will be starting up with their project by the first month of January 2019. It is expected that the work will progress without any kind of delay and this will be a significant move for the people of Louisiana. This is a good place to live in.
According to Edwards from the Ascension Parish, this is very much exciting for the people living around here because they will be offered with new jobs with decent payment options. There will also be foreign direct investment from different companies in Germany, which will have a very strong presence in the United States of America.
Vega has come out and announced that they are really pleased to work with the people around here because they have really been very helpful. This project was pending for quite a long period of time and people are really excited for the project to start from January 2019.
It is a win-win situation for both the parties and both of them will be benefiting from each other in the long run.
