Quaker Windows and Doors recently announced construction has begun on the third phase of its facility in Eldon, Missouri. Quaker aims to complete the expansion project by early 2022, which will create 300 new full-time jobs in the region.
“Quaker has been a key employer in Central Missouri for more than 70 years, and its success deserves to be celebrated,” Governor Mike Parson said. “Over 1,000 Missourians are currently employed by Quaker, and by helping the company create even more good paying jobs, we are building a better future for the next generation.”
The facility represents nearly $65 million in capital investment and is the company’s second mid-Missouri campus.
“This new facility represents a continuation of our strategic growth plan for the Eldon campus, and we are very excited about the additional new jobs this will bring to the community”, Quaker CEO Kevin Blansett said.
“So many state and local partners worked incredibly hard alongside Quaker Windows to ensure the success of this project,” Missouri Department of Economic Development Director Rob Dixon said. “Their hard work will help this community grow for years to come.”
“The City of Eldon is excited to see the next chapter in the Quaker story begin,” Mayor Trevor Vernon said. “The city has been blessed that Quaker chose to be part of the community a couple of years ago. The new jobs are boosting the Eldon economy and we look forward to Quaker’s continued success.”
