We made the decision to build our new Gulf Coast Division and 750,000 square foot distribution center in St. Tammany because of the support and assistance we received from the government and due to the access to a high quality and hardworking local workforce. We couldn't be happier, as in our first year, we've more than doubled our business and our productivity has already risen to the top in our company. We have been overwhelmed by the quality and availability of great employees. We all love it here!"

St. Tammany Parish is home to one of the most educated parishes/counties in the South. With the best large school system in the state, we put education at the top of the priority list. We feel that this is a definite contributor to our low unemployment rates which stay well below those at the regional, state, southern, and national levels.


Louisiana has one of the best workforces training programs in the country, and that is complemented by a State training credit. This offers corporations, both large and small, the employees that will help them succeed. It assures local companies employees from the deep end of the talent pool.
