Deep South Crane & Rigging brings jobs to DeQuincy
Deep South Crane & Rigging, LLC of Baton Rouge announced it is expanding to DeQuincy. The new office will serve as a heavy haul operations center and will add 30-50 jobs.
In March of 2014, Deep South purchased property at 100 Airpark Drive that includes an office and warehouse. The company plans to make additional investments in the property including a state-of-the-art welding shop.
“We believe DeQuincy is an ideal location to pull talent from the surrounding areas to work in our fabrication shop and heavy haul operation facility,” said Mitch Landry, President of Deep South Crane & Rigging. “We would like to thank Mayor Lawrence Henagan and Ray Franks for their assistance in establishing this facility.”
“This is wonderful economic news for the DeQuincy area, bringing good, quality jobs to our community,” said DeQuincy Mayor Henagan.
Deep South is looking for talented workers to fill job opportunities in truck driving, heavy haul operating, rigging, and welding. If interested, more information can be found on their website at www.deepsouthcrane.com/careers or by contacting Jody Hammett, Director of Training, at 225-753-4371.
