Dura-Bond Industries Inc. plans to build a 55,000-square-foot pipe-coating plant and 3,000-square-foot office in the RIDC Riverplace City Center of Duquesne industrial park that could mean between 75 to 85 jobs.

The new plant will complement the company's existing coating facility in Export. The plant could become operational sometime late 2011.

Jason Norris, Dura-Bond vice president of commercial operations said the added interest in deep-well drilling in the Marcellus shale helped spur the expansion. The choice of Duquesne was because of its proximity to rail lines and access to the river, he said.
