This investment is about transitioning our headquarters from Texas so we can better support our operations here at home.” […]

“Louisiana’s business climate has never been stronger and companies like Placid see the growth happening across our state and want to be part of it. […] It is most evident through the scale and pace companies are reinvesting in the state. I applaud Placid for creating new opportunities by making Baton Rouge its new home while building upon current operations.” […]

“Placid Refining’s decision to move its headquarters and make a new $66 million investment is a vote of confidence in our talent base and business climate. […] Placid is a strong community partner and good corporate citizen. Our team, in collaboration with partners like the West Baton Rouge Chamber, is here to support existing companies in the region every day.”
