VICKSBURG, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Golding Barge Line Inc. expects to add 50 to 60 employees and increase its towboat fleet from 14 to 20 boats.

The company got approval from the local zoning board this week to place a second manufactured building for office space at the company's waterfront property.

Austin Golding, the firm's marketing manager, says a recent increase in business influenced the company to hire the additional workers and increase its fleet. The company currently employs about 135 people.

Golding says the company expects the business expansion to continue through the next year and into 2015.

He says the increased business delayed plans for the new building. He says company officials also reviewed the building's design to ensure it can be expanded in the future.
