Infinity Operators LLC announced last week that it is investing $1.1 million to increase production capacity of its new air compression division through equipment upgrades and physical expansion of its manufacturing facility in Lafayette Parish.
The company, a subsidiary of Infinity Valve & Supply, is expected to create 68 direct new jobs with an average annual salary of $52,000, while retaining 47 existing positions, according to Louisiana Economic Development.
The company’s new air compressor packages will be powered by compressed air rather than natural gas, thus helping to reduce emissions, company officials say.
Infinity Valve and Supply is a family-owned business that was founded in 2002 and has been located in Youngsville since 2008. It also owns Infinity Operators, an energy service company founded in 2018 that specializes in oil and gas property management, contract operations and maintenance services. Earlier this year, Infinity established its air compressor division, called Infinity Air, to design, fabricate and maintain air compressor systems.
The expansion adds 14,536 square feet of operating space on 2.7 acres on Youngsville Highway. See the announcement.
