Brown Eagle has announced a new partnership with a major U.S. beverage company and is now expanding its service line to include food-grade storage. The beverage company will utilize 110,000 square feet of storage at a warehouse leased by Brown Eagle in Port Allen.
This investment in West Baton Rouge Parish will result in the creation of five new jobs focused on coordinating warehouse operations. These jobs are in addition to the 70 positions Brown Eagle currently employs through its Port Allen operations.
“We love being a part of this community,” said Brown Eagle president Billy Bellefontaine. “We’re excited about this new partnership and for the opportunity we have to expand our warehouse storage service in West Baton Rouge. There’s a void in this region when it comes to high-quality food-grade storage facilities. As we roll out this new and exciting service line for our clients, it opens up a world of opportunity for our company and for the local economy.”
