GRAMERCY — Louisiana Sugar Refining LLC has awarded an engineering contract to Davies Engineering Inc., a local engineering firm based in Gonzales, for work at its new sugar refinery currently under construction in Gramercy.

“Davies will be a great asset for us,” said Red Geurts, LSR general manager. “They will be doing the design of the electrical power distribution, control power distribution and lighting. When LSR is complete, it will become the newest and one of the largest capacity sugar refineries in the United States.”

Davies was founded in 1974.

Upon completion in early 2011, LSR will make refined white sugar that will be sold in dry bulk sugar form, in 50-pound bags and totes as well as liquid sugar.
