110 year old N.O. business moves to St. Rose
“We were housed in New Orleans for the past 110 years, but our company is growing so fast that we needed to expand,” Dave Podgorski, project manager for Prager, said.
Podgorski expects to hire 15 to 20 permanent employees once the company that makes gears and gearboxes relocates to St. Rose.
“Most of the new hires will have to have machinists background or training,” Podgorski told the Herald-Guide.
Councilman Clayton “Snookie” Faucheux says the company’s move is welcome.
“This is good for the parish,” he continued.
“We have added at least six new businesses since St. Charles Parish was included as a part of the GO Zone Act.”
The GO Zone legislation gives special tax breaks for capital investments in areas affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
