A Record Year 2022: Advanced Manufacturer Invests in Kennett, Missouri

As 2022 draws to a close, we’re celebrating a record-breaking year at Missouri Partnership by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today, we are highlighting Cim-Tek Filtration’s expansion in Kennett, Missouri.

In April, Cim-Tek Filtration, a leading manufacturer of filtration products, announced plans to invest in Kennett. The expansion would allow the company to continue to innovate in filtration and develop new products available worldwide, while creating up to 77 new jobs in the region.

“Cim-Tek Filtration’s expansion in Kennett is an exciting development for the Southeast region and another example of continued business investment in our state,” said Governor Mike Parson. “Whether in an urban center or rural area, Missouri has the resource advantages companies need to find success. Cim-Tek Filtration joins a growing list of leading manufacturers who are choosing our state for its skilled workforce, infrastructure, and low business costs, and we’re excited to welcome them to Missouri.”

“We’re excited to get started and are looking forward to growing our business in Kennett,” said James Ayers, President of Cim-Tek Filtration. “We would like to thank the state, county, and city partners, as well as many others, who made this expansion possible.”
