Missouri Wins 2018: Agtech Company Expands, Adds 38 Jobs In Missouri

All month long Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year, and today we are taking a look back at Smith Seed Services’ expansion in Lamar, Missouri.

In August, the Missouri Department of Economic Development announced that Smith Seed Services had selected Lamar, Missouri, as the location of its new Midwest seed coating plant. The new facility is expected to create 38 new jobs in the region.

“We are thrilled to welcome Smith Seed Services to Lamar, Missouri,” Governor Mike Parson said. “This company chose our state because of the great community in Lamar, the strong agricultural industry in Missouri, and our central location which allows them to reach key customers in the Midwest. We look forward to supporting their continued growth for many years to come.”

Check out our full coverage of the expansion here.
