Missouri Wins 2019: Advanced Manufacturing Company Expands, Creates 132 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. Today we are taking a look back at Dakota Bodies’ expansion in Liberty, Missouri.

In July, Dakota Bodies announced plans to expand, hire 132 new employees, and make a $4.1 million capital investment over the next 5 years in Liberty. The expansion is due to the growth and high demand of quality engineered truck bodies.

This is a great investment in Liberty by Dakota Bodies that will create more than 100 life-changing jobs in the community,” said Subash Alias, CEO of Missouri Partnership. “Missouri is a global leader in manufacturing, with leading-edge workforce training solutions and a statewide commitment to supporting the businesses that invest and create jobs here. It was an honor to work with Dakota Bodies, the State of Missouri and Liberty EDC on this attraction project.”
