The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) today announced that a Kansas City-based mechanical construction company will be expanding their local operations. U.S. Engineering’s $2.8 million expansion project is expected to create 85 new jobs.
“Today’s announcement is further proof that Missouri’s economy continues to grow and thrive,” said Mike Downing, Acting Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “U.S. Engineering’s investment in our state validates our business friendly climate and top-notch workforce. I look forward to growing our partnership with U.S. Engineering as we work together to stimulate business and create more jobs.”
U.S. Engineering Company has expanded its fabrication capabilities with a 75,000 square foot facility in Kansas City. Its new fabrication facility includes 25,000 square feet of sheet metal manufacturing space and 50,000 square feet of modular fabrication and warehouse space. The expansion is core to U.S. Engineering’s ability to provide modular prefabrication as well as sheet metal manufacturing and installation for commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities throughout the Midwest region on projects such as the Ewing Marion Kauffman School, Country Club Bank Renovation, and Children’s Mercy Hospital renovation work in Kansas City, and the Mercy Replacement Hospital in Joplin.
