Missouri continues to deliver more than you expect. More global industries. More diverse assets. More talent. All month long, Missouri Partnership is celebrating “more” by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from 2021.
In June, Frozen Food Express (FFE) Transportation Services, Inc., the largest nationwide asset-based temperature-controlled LTL transportation and warehousing provider, expanded its business with a new transportation and logistics facility in Butler, Missouri.
“Missouri’s central location and business-friendly environment is a leading destination for transportation and logistics companies like this one, and we are excited to welcome FFE Transportation to Missouri,” said Governor Mike Parson. “FFE is bringing good-paying jobs and economic opportunities to Missourians in this rural community. We look forward to working together as FFE finds success and grows within our state.”
The company invested nearly $6 million in Butler and created nearly 60 new jobs in the region.
“We are very excited about expanding our operation into the Butler region,” said Jim Richards, President and CEO of FFE Transportation. “We look forward to working closely with the community and being a great partner.”
