Expansion of commercial laundry services company to the parish will create 40 new jobs immediately, officials say
Dozens of new jobs will be created in Jefferson Parish as a result of the expansion of a company that provides commercial laundry services to the hospitality industry.
Parish economic development officials announced Tuesday that Starr Textile Services has purchased a new facility in the Elmwood Business Park.
The expansion into Jefferson Parish will create 40 new jobs immediately, with another 25 people being hired in the first two years of receiving loan funding.
Officials say Starr is also partnering with two Kenner-based companies that will design and equip Starr's new facility.
Starr Textiles plans to fully move into the new building by August 2013.
