Triumph Foods, a pork processing operation, plans to create 72 new jobs with a capital investment of $1.5 million. With a workforce of over 2,800 today, the company began processing operations in 2006, in St. Joseph, MO, where it is headquartered. The company processes in excess of six million hogs each year, and are looking to add some new machinery and equipment.
Not too far away, St. Joe Petroleum, a distributor of oil lubricants including Phillips66 products, as well as Shell, Mobil, and American Oil brands, plans to create three new jobs with a capital investment of $110,000. Being a family-owned business, the owners started with just one tank wagon driver so they can be more than proud of their recent growth.
Back in March of 2017, more good news was revealed for St. Joseph as Altec Industries announced that they plan to add 105 new jobs in the St. Joseph area over the next three years by investing in personal and real property improvements as well as manufacturing and non-manufacturing machinery and equipment. Altec Industries is a provider of products and services to the electric utility, telecommunications, tree care, lights and signs, and contractor markets.
Finally, the City of St. Joseph will be assisting the growth of Johnson Controls, a global leader in building products and technology, integrated solutions, energy storage and information-based retail solutions. The company plans to create 51 new, full-time manufacturing jobs with a capital investment of almost $36 million.
