BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — PreSonus Audio Electronics Inc. says it will build a new $8 million research facility in Baton Rouge and move its headquarters there.

The company said Wednesday it expects the expansion to create 65 new jobs with an average salary of $80,000 within three years.

Gov. Bobby Jindal said the "home grown 'made-in-Louisiana'" company was started in a garage 20 years ago and now employs more than 130 people worldwide. Jindal said the company will take advantage of the state's digital media tax credits.

PreSonus expects construction on the new location to be complete by next year. CEO Jim Mack says they intend to add to their engineering staff.

The company, founded in 1995, makes digital and analog hardware and integrated software systems for the professional audio market.
