    Yet another thing that was supposed to be great for Ruston according to current leadership. But didn’t they have big layoff recently? Closing plant here or something?

      Moving manufacturing to China, keeping distribution, for now in Ruston, hasn’t been a year that it has been operational. Thanks Walker for another great deal for Ruston. How soon will it be that we’re on the hook for paying the lease on the building?

    • RavenMad Says:

      Over the next decade, the project will create 287 new direct jobs with an average annual salary of $46,800, plus benefits, and more than 50 of those jobs have been filled to date. Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will result in an additional 292 new indirect jobs, for a total of more than 570 new jobs in North Louisiana.

      Monster Moto’s relocation from Dallas to Ruston consisted of a $4 million capital investment as part of a public-private development to build a 100,000-square-foot facility housing the company’s operations at the former site of Ruston’s municipal airport. The new facility also will shift the company’s manufacturing operations from overseas to the U.S. to meet the demand of retailers for U.S.-made vehicles. The Monster Moto facility in Ruston was designed to allow expansion up to 300,000 square feet in the future.
      The company selected the Ruston site after a competitive selection process that involved sites in Texas, Florida and South Carolina. To secure the project, the State of Louisiana offered Monster Moto an incentive package that includes Louisiana’s Competitive Projects Payroll Incentive Program. The company also is receiving the comprehensive workforce solutions of LED FastStart®, the nation’s No. 1 state workforce training program, and is utilizing the state’s Industrial Tax Exemption Program.

    So what can Ruston do? We have crime rate rising. Leadership only concerned with younger crowd that probably doesn’t vote and focusing on more alcohol events and less family atmosphere . Much money being spent on things like sports complex but doubtful years from now people will care about that. It’s on the south side . Very worried about my home. It’s sure not a retirement city. Becoming a party town .
