Governor John Bel Edwards along with the Port of Iberia Executive Director and Board of Commissioners today welcomed Turner Industries as the latest company to locate at the Port of Iberia. Turner Industries provides turnkey services and solutions to the nation’s heavy industrial sector, supporting companies that produce fuel, energy, and products essential to modern life.
According to Port Executive Director Craig Romero, Turner Industries is expanding their capacity to service their growing customer base in the manufacturing and petrochemical facilities along the Gulf coast. Turner will be occupying the former Dynamic Industries location.
Stephen M. Toups, Turner Industries President stated, “When looking to expand our capabilities and services, Turner Industries considered available properties across the Gulf South and Eastern Seaboard. The flexibility and consistency of the diligent team at the port led to a simple decision. The Port of Iberia is the best strategic option for our company’s future operations. We’re excited to be a tenant of the port as we continue providing one solution for our clients’ success with the opening of the new Turner Industries – Gulf of Mexico Operations.”
