3M plans to expand facility in Missouri

Global manufacturer, 3M plans to expand its facility in Nevada, Mo., according to the office of Gov. Jay Nixon. The company intends to invest more than $18 million into the Nevada plant's expansion, which will add at least 22 jobs.

The company was founded in 1902 and has since grown to design and manufacture thousands of products around the world. 3M's Nevada plant opened in 1971 and focuses on commercial graphics and signage. It has a workforce of 639 employees and is the largest 3M facility in Missouri. 3M employs approximately 1,259 people in the state, Area Development reported.

The company's expansion of this facility is made possible by the Missouri Department of Economic Development. If 3M meets particular job creation and investment requirements, it will receive an economic incentive.

"Again and again, we're seeing global companies like 3M invest in the Show-Me State and hire hard-working Missourians to help grow their business," Nixon stated. "Our superior workforce and pro-business climate continue to create opportunities and spur economic development in every corner of the state."

Businesses, whether small or expansive like 3M, should partner with manufacturing recruiters to find the most qualified and skilled labor for their growing facilities.
