“I appreciate the State of Missouri, the Missouri Partnership, and the Rolla Regional Economic Commission for their professionalism during the location strategy and final decision-making process,” said Gerry Lavis, President of Hartmann North America. “The central location with improved transportation access from the I-44 corridor and intermodal rail connections in St. Louis and Kansas City will allow us to quickly connect with our customers across the country.  Here, we have found an excellent regional manufacturing workforce and a competitive business climate overall, which factored into the final decision to locate to Rolla.”
