History of the Port of Krotz Springs
The Greater Krotz Springs Port Commission was founded in 1956 under the direction of Frank Diesi.
Frank Diesi served as the first President of the Port from 1956 – 1992. His son, Salvador (“Sal”) Diesi, was appointed to the Commission by the City of Opelousas in 1992, and served as a Board Member until 2011. Sal also served as President from 1998 – 2011. In 2011, Frank’s grandson and Sal’s son, Joseph Diesi, was appointed by the City of Opelousas as Commissioner. Joseph Diesi served on the board from 2011 – 2015.
It is through the Diesi Family’s commitment and devotion the Port of Krotz Springs has grown into what it is today. We look forward to what the future holds as new business and development are currently underway. Follow our News section for the most recent announcements.
