BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A $33 million modernization project at Honeywell’s chemical and refrigerant gases manufacturing facility in Baton Rouge has been completed.

Gov. Bobby Jindal and Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies President and CEO Darius Adamczyk announced the completion Monday. The project extended the life of Honeywell’s existing facility, retaining 200 jobs and creating 11 new ones with an average salary of $64,000.

The plant expansion, which made the Baton Rouge site more competitive, included the construction of a new production line to produce an innovative, environmentally preferable product for use in energy-efficient insulation and in aerosol and refrigerant applications.

The project is in addition to separate Honeywell projects announced last year for sites in Caddo, Ascension and East Baton Rouge parishes.
