Missouri Governor Eric Greitens visited numerous companies around the state yesterday, announcing more than 850 new jobs. Spring Venture Group, Rosenet and Seyer Industries each announced plans to expand in the Show-Me state.
“Our mission is more jobs and higher pay and we are getting results,” said Gov. Eric Greitens. “856 new jobs is 856 lives changed. It’s 856 families’ lives changed. We are proud to be fighting for Missouri families every day.”
Spring Venture Group, an insurance agency in Kansas City, Missouri, announced its plans to invest more than $25 million and add 681 new jobs in the coming years. While Seyer Industries, an aerospace and defense company specializing in the manufacture of higher-level assemblies for the aerospace and maritime industries, announced their plans to add more than 125 new jobs to the state.
“We couldn’t be more excited about growing our company in Kansas City for many years to come,” said Chris Giuliani, CEO, Spring Venture Group. “Downtown offers a central location in the metro for recruiting, Kansas City offers an incredible talent pool, and the activity going on downtown is very exciting to be a part of.”
“We are thrilled to continue to grow our operations here in St. Peters and St. Charles County,” said Chris Seyer, President of Seyer Industries. “The expansion will provide much-needed space for new machinery and equipment that will enable us to grow with our customers. The city, county, and state have all been very supportive throughout the planning process.”
Gov. Greitens also announced Rosenet, a data management company in Missouri’s Kansas City region, is planning to add another 50 client services and web development positions – taking advantage of Missouri’s growing tech workforce.
Founded in 1998, Rosnet was the first web-based enterprise reporting solution for multi-unit restaurant operators. From an initial offering, the company’s products have grown to include tools that assist restaurant managers with controlling food and labor costs and many additional modules that include daily checklists, log books and inventory capabilities.
“I cannot imagine doing business in any other state,” said Gene Peters, President/CEO of Rosnet. “I am looking forward to the expansion of our staff and facilities here in Parkville. I believe that Governor Greitens has the best interests of Missouri’s businesses in mind with the economic development policies that he has proposed.”
