Governor Jay Nixon was in Mountain Grove today to announce the state of Missouri has awarded $305,907 in Enhanced Enterprise Zone (EEZ) tax credits to 3G Processing to assist the company with a $6 million capital investment that will create 90 new area jobs. The new company, which will process food waste into animal feed, is completely renovating a former steel plant and purchasing new equipment for its local operation facility.
“With 90 local jobs being created, this is great news for the economy of Wright County and the surrounding area,” Gov. Nixon said in a news conference at the newly renovated facility. “From day one, my administration’s top priority has been creating jobs and getting Missourians back to work. Over the past few months, companies both large and small have announced thousands of new jobs in every corner of Missouri, and we will continue to work tirelessly to create jobs and move our economy forward.”
