SNF Polychemie is investing $5 million in its Port Bienville property to produce Flosperse, a liquid used in desalination of seawater and for other purposes.
The 17-year tenant of Port Bienville will add 10 jobs with the expansion and increase the number of employees on site to 74, plant manager Jim Bishop said in a release from the Hancock Port and Harbor Commission.
SNF Polychemie, based in Paris, is the world’s leading manufacturer of water-soluble polymers.
Another company, Goodnight Terminal Services, has moved its main warehouse facility from Florida to Port Bienville, bringing with it 10 jobs and an investment of about $200,000, according to the release.
