Module X Solutions LLC has announced plans to make a $7.4 million capital investment and create 357 new direct jobs at a 750,000-sq.-ft. Shreveport, La., manufacturing facility. The company will join existing tenant MB Industries LLC at the plant, with Module X Solutions chiefly manufacturing modular buildings for the telecommunications sector while supporting MB Industries’ production of protective building systems for the industrial, government, commercial, and residential markets.
Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will result in an additional 578 new indirect jobs. MB Industries also will retain 109 existing employees as part of the project, and renovation work at the site will create an additional 50 construction jobs.
In addition to the capital improvements at the 35-acre industrial property, Module X Solutions will seek a long-term lease of the site.
