Economic Development Sedalia-Pettis County joined officials from Stribling, Inc., to celebrate the announcement of an expansion for the company in Sedalia.
Stribling, Inc., of Rogers, Arkansas, is planning a $1 million expansion to their existing facility. The expansion will include a 42,000 square foot addition to the existing facility. This expansion will bring their total square footage to 72,000 square foot. In addition to the 3 employees currently employed at the facility, Stribling is expected to hire 2-3 additional employees.
Stribling Packaging began their operations in 1998 at 107 Curry Drive, in the Thompson Meadows Industrial Park, Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri.
"At the time we built our current 30,000 square foot facility we never expected we would outgrow that facility in 15 years and need to expand it. However, that is a nice problem to have," stated Bill Stribling, owner.
"We love to grow our business and this is a great place to do so. Stribling owes a lot of our growth to our customers, our employees, the business-friendly environment and the cooperation of our local partners. In Sedalia we enjoy a great atmosphere for our company," added Stribling.
"We are pleased to, once again, have this growth from one of our companies," said Economic Development Board President Rusty Kahrs. "Our existing companies will continue to be the foundation of our community."
"The expansion of Stribling is a tremendous addition to the community of Sedalia," said Sedalia Mayor Steve Galliher. "Our warehouse and distribution companies are a huge part of the growth we are experiencing by provide needed customer service to our manufacturing sector."
Economic Development Sedalia-Pettis County, the City of Sedalia, and Pettis County officials partnered with Stribling, Inc. to make its expansion possible.
