Gov. Jay Nixon today joined officials from Ag-Power to break ground on the company’s new facility in Higginsville. After Ag-Power’s previous facility in Higginsville was destroyed in a fire in March, the company is investing $8.7 million to rebuild with an expanded facility and hire an additional 28 employees.
“The state is proud to help rebuild Ag-Power and expand here in Higginsville,” Gov. Nixon said. “Agriculture is a bedrock industry here in Missouri, and farm families across the state and country can count on Ag-Power to have the equipment and services they need to continue feeding, fueling and clothing the world.”
Ag-Power is an agricultural and wholesale services company headquartered in McKinney, Texas and operates 17 locations across Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri. The company provides a diverse portfolio of high-quality, name brand products including tractors, power equipment, chainsaws, and augers. Ag-Power has experienced rapid recent growth, acquiring six new Missouri dealerships since April 2013 in Richmond, Marshall, Centerview, Carrollton and Sedalia.
