MOBILE, AL. (AP) Standard Concrete Products Inc. of Columbus, GA, has chosen a site in south Mobile County for a $20-million plant that’s expected to bring 200 jobs.

The plant is expected to begin production later this year.

Standard Concrete bought the property from the Alabama State Port Authority — 50 acres at the west end of the Theodore industrial canal.

In a statement, company President Mason H. Lampton said the company had searched for a Gulf Coast site since mid-2005. Hurricane Katrina has created a demand for precast concrete.

Alabama Port Authority President and CEO James K. Lyons said the company will bring building materials vital to regional public and private construction and transportation infrastructure projects.
