As 2021 draws to a close, Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year.

In October, ALPLA Inc. North America announced plans to build a new 246,000 square foot injection molding facility in Kansas City, Missouri.

“ALPLA’s decision to grow in Missouri demonstrates our state’s ability to support companies with our highly skilled workforce, affordable business costs and unmatched logistical advantages,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “We are home to global leaders across various industries, and we take great pride in providing companies like ALPLA with a solid foundation to ensure their success in Missouri.”

ALPLA is creating 75 new jobs in the region. This is their fourth facility in the state and the first dedicated to injection molding.
