“TC Transcontinental Packaging’s expansion in Clinton demonstrates our state’s ability to support companies with our skilled workforce, low business costs, and unmatched logistical advantages,” said Governor Mike Parson. “Missouri is home to global leaders across various industries, and we’re proud to provide companies like TC Transcontinental Packaging with a solid foundation for success. We look forward to this company’s continued growth as we celebrate this significant investment in our state.”
The expansion is TC Transcontinental Packaging’s second in two years and will further expand its food packaging capabilities, while creating 50 new jobs in the region.
“We have a strong culture of performance, innovation, respect, and teamwork at TC Transcontinental Clinton,” said Jeff Lasley, Senior Vice President at Transcontinental Packaging. “Our workforce is dedicated, hardworking, and agile. Our team has earned this investment by laying the groundwork for growth. They continuously deliver on our customers’ needs and expectations, and we’re thrilled to support this team by creating new jobs in the community. Transcontinental Clinton has been a member of the Clinton community for over 27 years. In addition to providing the community with job opportunities, we are passionate about continuing to support families in need and community youth through our participation in over 30 events and charities.”
When completed in late 2023, the 225,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing plant will serve as one of TC Transcontinental Packaging’s flagship operations.
“The City of Clinton wants our local companies to know how important they are to our economy, and we will continue to be aggressive in our efforts with local expansions,” said Clinton Mayor Carla Moberly. “We’re working to show new companies we mean business and that we are a great location to consider. TC Transcontinental Packaging is a great company and we’re appreciative of their continued investments and new jobs here. The Mayor and City Council are proud to have had a part in this world-class project. These new jobs are high-paying jobs and are much higher than the current county average wage rate.”
