SIKESTON, Mo., — Carlisle Construction Materials LLC (CCM) has officially opened its newest facility in Sikeston, Missouri. Local, regional and state leaders joined the manufacturing company’s executives in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the facility earlier today.
“We’re proud that Carlisle Construction Materials chose to expand its business here in Missouri,” said Governor Mike Parson. “This investment is a testament to our state’s talented workforce, business-friendly environment, and great quality of life that has made Missouri an ideal location for leading manufacturing companies like Carlisle. We look forward to seeing how this facility and the job opportunities it creates will make southeast Missouri an even stronger place to live and work.”
Carlisle Construction Materials invested more than $100 million in the new nearly 500,000-square-foot production and manufacturing facility.
“We at Carlisle are grateful for the warm welcome we have received from the State of Missouri and the people of Sikeston,” said Steve Schwar, President of Carlisle Construction Materials. “This brand-new plant, which will create 100 jobs in the Sikeston region, is Carlisle’s second location in Missouri. Carlisle is committed to success and growth here in Sikeston, which is an ideal location to serve our strategic and growing markets.” Schwar continued, “As a company, Carlisle is very focused on being a good steward of the environment. That’s why this plant, which produces energy-efficient insulation products, was built with the goal of achieving LEED Platinum status, which is a globally recognized symbol of superior sustainability achievement.”
The manufacturing company chose to open this new polyiso facility in Missouri due to the state’s central location, workforce and low cost of business.
“Carlisle Construction Materials is a perfect fit for Sikeston,” said Mayor Greg Turnbow. “Sikeston has hard-working residents with an unmatched work ethic, which is critical for Carlisle as they open this new facility. Our community is grateful for their investment here, and we are committed to their long-term success in Sikeston.”
“We are thrilled to welcome this leading manufacturer to our region,” said Marcie Lawson, President and CEO of the Sikeston Area Economic Development Corporation. “Carlisle Construction Materials has an impeccable reputation, and they have already made a positive impact on our community. We are excited to watch them grow in our area.”
A national leader in the roofing industry, CCM is a diversified manufacturer and supplier of premium building products and related technologies for the commercial and residential construction markets.
