Louisiana state governor John Bel Edwards and Mid South Extrusion president Ron Mason recently announced the latter will invest $4.5 million to add a 10th production line to its facility in Monroe. The US company will upgrade its Ouachita Parish operations, where it produces polyethylene films for packaging and other industrial and commercial uses.

With the expansion, Mid South Extrusion will create eight new jobs with an average annual salary of $28,000. Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will result in 16 new indirect jobs, for a total of 24 new jobs for Ouachita Parish and the Northeast Region. The company also is retaining 128 existing jobs at the Monroe plant, according to an official release.

“This family owned-company found a niche in its manufacturing sector, leading it to expand and add more jobs time and again. This latest investment and the new jobs that will be created are welcome news for the Northeast Region," Edwards said.

Mid South manufactures polyethylene films for retail packaging, lamination substrates, and construction and pipe wrapping applications. It also manufactures packaging film used for bedding, furniture, carpet, medical, textile and canning applications.

Founded in 1986 as a small blown-film company, it began operations with one production line and four employees in a 17,000 square-foot building.
