Missouri’s economy had another great year in 2017. According to the Missouri Department of Economic Development, Missouri saw 61 major expansions totaling more $1 billion in capital investment, and creating more than 5,800 new jobs across the state.
Companies that expanded in Missouri in 2017 included industry leaders such as World Wide Technology, Dollar Tree, and American Outdoor Brands Corporation, a company that represents a broad portfolio of entities in the hunting and outdoor enthusiast market, including Smith & Wesson, along with many more.
With 2017 in the rear-view and new expansions taking place in St. Louis, Kansas City and beyond, Missouri’s economy looks primed for success in 2018. The coming year will see Missouri continuing to lead the world in agtech innovation, while also cultivating our world-class talent in aerospace and automotive manufacturing, financial services, logistics, energy solutions and more.
