Officials in Livingston Parish announced yesterday that Epic Piping, a newly created pipe fabrication company, will invest more than $45 million to develop a 70-acre site near the intersection of Interstate 12 and La. 63 in Satsuma that is expected to employ more than 500 people over the next several years. According to coverage from the Baton Rouge Business Report, the Livingston Economic Development Council worked with the group for several months on the site, which the company does not yet technically own but is hoping to close on soon. The Baton Rouge Area Chamber and Louisiana Economic Development also helped put the deal together.
