Coburn Supply Company
Bossier Parish is viewed as a forward thinking community dedicated to supporting business growth and development. No one can express it better than the actual businesses who look to our community to help grow their business. “We chose to invest in Bossier because Bossier invests in itself.” explains Coburn’s V.P. & General Manager, Darren Tramel on the company’s expansion in Bossier Parish. Coburn Supply Company approached the GBEDF about their interest in developing land located inside the Commerce Industrial Park at I-220 and Shed Road where they planned to construct a new showroom and warehouse facility from the ground up. The GBEDF assisted in facilitating the negotiations to purchase the land used for the new development. The $1.5 million dollar development would help the company to expand its services to the regional market and create approximately 50 new jobs in addition to its existing employment base.
