Economic Development Sedalia-Pettis County and The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced today that QC Supply, an international distributor of agricultural goods, will open a new distribution center in Sedalia. The Schuyler, Nebraska based company sells livestock equipment and supplies and provides installation of specific lines of products for livestock and poultry equipment. Mr. Lonnie Kitt is President of the company.
The expansion will include a capital investment of $1,120,000 and is expected to bring 9 new full-time jobs at an average wage of $35,556 in addition to new Distribution Center Manager, Mr. James Sampson.
Founded in 1982, QC Supply, offers thousands of brand names and a wide variety of products for agriculture, poultry, livestock and commercial use, as well as hard-to-find products. QC Supply also has its own, patented line of clothing (Five Rock), fans (Durafan) and heaters (Scorpion). Customers return to QC for in-house technical support experts trained in a wide variety of products. These experts are able to answer technical questions, aid customers in product selection and support after the sale. This level of customer assistance is a primary differentiator from competitors.
Opening a new distribution center in Sedalia will put QC Supply nearer to some of its major clients. The Sedalia facility, to be located at 2700 South Limit, Sedalia, Missouri, is slated to open in mid-June.
To assist QC Supply with its expansion, the Department of Economic Development have authorized a strategic, performance based, economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria.
