British company to expand divisional headquarters in downtown St. Louis and create new jobs

Gov. Jay Nixon recently announced that Bull Moose Industries, a subsidiary of UK-based Caparo Group, founded by The Rt. Hon. Lord Paul of Marylebone, will expand its North American headquarters in St. Louis and create up to 25 high-paying jobs. The announcement also highlighted the company’s decision to invest in the renovation of the former Missouri Theater Building, which will become home to a multi-use development site and include offices, restaurants and shops, as well as a hotel.

While leading a European trade mission in 2013, the Governor met with Caparo founder Lord Paul and CEO Hon. Angad Paul in London. A similar success story after a 2015 trade mission was announced on May 29 when Italian manufacturer PivaGroup said it would invest $6.4 million and create more than 120 jobs in Ste. Genevieve at its first manufacturing facility in the U.S. 

“Bull Moose’s announcement is further evidence that strengthening our relationships with global companies can bring new investments and new jobs to the state,” Gov. Nixon said. “It is also a testament to our top-notch workforce and highly competitive business environment. Bull Moose’s investment will provide high-paying jobs and spur additional economic activity by revitalizing the downtown area. I want to thank Bull Moose Industries and the Caparo Group for their continued and growing commitment to our state and to the City of St. Louis.”
