BROUSSARD, La. (AP) - Exterran will begin closing its Broussard Production Equipment Manufacturing facility Aug. 28, when 46 employees will be terminated. That’s according to a letter the company sent the Louisiana Workforce Commission.

By the time the plant is fully closed later this year, officials say a total of 76 workers will have lost their jobs.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1HfSasG) the plant in Broussard makes equipment for the oil and gas industry.

Chris Michel, senior vice president for global human resources at corporate parent Exterran Holdings Inc., wrote state officials that the Broussard plant will remain open at least until either November or December, when the second round of layoffs is expected.
