DMC Carter Chambers Breaks Ground for Baton Rouge Campus - Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, joined Joey Jobe, President & CEO of DMC Carter Chambers, Jack Guidry of PVI Holdings, Erik van‘t Hof of Pon Holdings BV as well as a host of local dignitaries on May 8, 2012, to announce our company's plans to build a new 90,000-square-foot headquarters facility on a lot next to our company's current headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The project will include consolidating the existing headquarters with its Gonzales and Prairieville operations. We expected to create 80 new jobs over the next few years, as well as retain 128 existing jobs. Louisiana Economic Development—which is providing DMC Carter Chambers with a performance-based $600,000 Economic Development Loan Program award and a $400,000 Modernization Tax Credit, along with customized job screening, hiring, and training services through its FastStart program—estimates the project will also create 155 new indirect jobs. "The company looked at relocating the Baton Rouge headquarters to Houston, where its parent company is based," Jindal noted in his speech to employees and local dignitaries. "Ultimately, the company decided to not only stay in Baton Rouge, but to expand their operations because of their strong and dedicated workforce and the tremendous support of our local and state economic development allies."

"DMC Carter Chambers is grateful for our continued success over the past 52 years,” Joey Jobe said in a statement. "This investment in Louisiana will have a positive impact on our employees, our clients and will offer dynamic employment opportunities for the greater Baton Rouge area.” Mayor-President Kip Holden commented that DMC Carter Chambers’ facility expansion will have a huge impact on Baton Rouge. Baton Rouge Area Chamber President and CEO Adam Knapp said DMC Carter Chambers has recognized the strengths of Baton Rouge after doing business here for many years.

Construction of our new facility will begin this year and should be completed by next fall.
