KIK Consumer Products is adding a new facility soon in Right to Work Westlake, Louisiana. They have chosen this location, no doubt, because of the economic benefits that Right to Work states provide.

From Area Development Magazine:

“We are proud to bring a new state-of-the-art facility to Westlake [and] to bring back great opportunities for our people[…]. For anyone in any manufacturing industry, Hurricane Laura was the level of disaster you plan for and pray never happens. But if it does, you want your team to respond exactly the way ours did. They worked to secure the site and then get it ready to bring us back better than we were before.†[…]

“Today’s announcement is a testament to the fortitude, determination and resilience of our people and our business climate. […] Hurricane Laura pushed Southwest Louisiana to its heels, but the people of this region have shown strength throughout its long and storied history. We welcome BioLab’s reinvestment in Westlake and are grateful for their support in helping this region come back stronger.†[…]

“We are very pleased that BioLab is rebuilding their facility here in Southwest Louisiana. […] This will result in more than 80 direct jobs and about 200 indirect jobs. While this plant has been closed, a shortage has developed of many household products and swimming pool chemicals. The scarcity of these products from this facility received national attention. Many across the nation will welcome a new BioLab plant.â€AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
