Business Relocation to the Baton Rouge Area - Trafigura

Real Estate Agent with Baton Rouge Area Homes

The Baton Rouge area in general and Ascension Parish in particular has received some exciting job and economic growth news.

Trafigura - which is an international commodity trading company - has elected to purchase an idled terminal in Burnside.  This terminal will be used to ship coal, bauxite and alumina in and out of the US.  It is expected that this purchase will create 100 permanent jobs for the Baton Rouge area.  In addition, the company expects to create 200 construction jobs to get the terminal re-opened.  In all, Trafigura is investing $130 million dollars in our community....$28 million to purchase the facility and $100 million to refurbish it.

That's a tremendous shot of confidence in our local workforce and infrastructure.
