LaFarge to create jobs

An industrial company is looking to hire in Illinois because of increased customer demand. 

A spokeswoman with LaFarge says the company plans to restart its second kiln at its cement plant in Joppa, Illinois. That kiln was shut down in 2012, and 36 workers were laid off. 

The spokeswoman said the economy has improved enough since then to restart the kiln later this year, and LaFarge plans to create 47 jobs between the plant and its quarry in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. It also plans to build a third kiln by 2016.
