HOUMA, La. -- Cortec, a manufacturer of high-quality API chokes, valves and manifolds, and Louisiana Economic Development (LED) have announced a $2.5-million expansion of Cortec’s industrial coatings facility in Port Allen, La.

Cortec and LED began working on the proposed expansion in March 2018, which will be completed by second-quarter 2019. The expansion will allow Cortec to increase its space, equipment and capabilities from its existing operations and expand further into specialized coatings to enhance the performance and lifespan of equipment. Cortec will create four new jobs and seven indirect jobs with the Port Allen expansion.

Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards said, “Louisiana is fortunate to have an innovative manufacturing sector, with companies such as Cortec continuing to grow and thrive. This homegrown company has found a formula for success in providing key products to the oil and gas drilling industry, both here and abroad. We look forward to CORTEC’s continued growth in Louisiana.”
