Ohio: Nachurs Alpine Solutions said it will spend $13.9 million to build a fertilizer manufacturing and distribution plant at the Ciba-Geigy site in St. Gabriel.
 
The plant will create 16 new direct jobs with an average salary of more than $45,700, plus benefits, according to the Louisiana economic development department. Forty-four indirect jobs also will be created.
 
“Our reasons for locating to the Louisiana site are to better serve and expand our fertilizer and industrial businesses in the South and to have good port access for importing and exporting,” said Jeff Barnes, chief financial officer of Nachurs. “The Ciba-Geigy site will allow us to undertake new manufacturing processes, and Iberville Parish provides us with a strong work force.”
 
Ohio-based Nachurs recently bought a 69-acre parcel at the Ciba-Geigy site. Construction of the 174,000-square-foot plant is set to begin before the end of the year and the facility is expected to be completed by mid-2014.
 
Nachurs manufactures and sells liquid fertilizer for a variety of agricultural products, including corn, soybean and wheat production. The company also develops liquid fertilizer for canola, alfalfa, potatoes, sugar beets, lentils and other fruits and vegetables.
