Project will add 50 new direct jobs while retaining 80 existing jobs for Mandeville company
Baton Rouge, LA -- Governor John Bel Edwards and President Matthew Saacks of Ampirical Solutions LLC announced the company will create 50 new direct jobs to expand its electrical transmission infrastructure and distribution firm in St. Tammany Parish. Based in Mandeville, Louisiana, the company specializes in the design of substations, relay switchyards, protective relays and controls, transmission lines, distribution lines and related operations.
The 50 new direct jobs created by Ampirical in the expansion will have an average annual salary of $85,206, plus benefits, while the company also will retain 80 existing jobs. Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will result in 82 new indirect jobs, for a total of more than 130 new jobs in St. Tammany Parish and the Southeast Region.
Ampirical provides a broad range of engineering and related services to the electrical transmission infrastructure marketplace. The company’s target market has continually grown since its founding in 2006, but recent economic and industry factors have driven spending in the national transmission and distribution infrastructure to record highs. Ampirical’s customers include investor-owned utilities, municipalities, industrial plants, electrical co-ops and independent power producers.
“Our desire is to demonstrate the ability of highly technical companies to grow and flourish in this state,” Saacks said. “Accelerated hiring is critical for Ampirical to compete for the talent it needs to continue its success in executing projects. Ampirical offers prime careers for engineering professionals and related jobs, such as project managers, designers and drafters. Furthermore, Louisiana has strong numbers of both experienced talent and college graduates to staff our growing workforce.”
Ampirical recently was named in Inc. magazine’s 5000 Fastest-Growing Private U.S. Companies for the third time in five years. The company marked its 10th anniversary earlier this year and was selected as a Top Workplace in the New Orleans area by nola.com/The Times-Picayune.
