Advanced manufacturing company to open in Pomona

The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced today that Robinson Laser, a manufacturer of laser cut steel parts, is locating to Pomona. The company will invest $1,289,000 to open the Pomona facility, and will create 30 new jobs.

“Missouri manufacturing is alive and well,” said Mike Downing, director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “Investments by companies, like Robinson Laser, prove that our superior workforce and diverse economic tool box continues to spur economic growth.”

Robinson Laser was founded in 1987 in East Chicago, Ind., and originally operated under the name Robinson Steel. Robinson Laser’s decision to relocate to Missouri was largely impacted by the state’s business-friendly climate, low energy costs and excellent transportation network.
