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, Hallmark broke ground on a new 850,000 square foot facility in Liberty, Missouri.
“Hallmark’s decision to grow in Missouri is a true testament to our state’s position as a leader in distribution and logistics,” said Governor Mike Parson. “Our strategic location in the center of the United States provides companies like Hallmark with easy access to global markets. We are proud to be the home of Hallmark’s headquarters, and we will continue to provide Missouri businesses with the tools they need to be successful in the state.”
The new facility is an expansion of the current Liberty distribution center, which is less than one mile away. It will grow the company’s footprint in Liberty by 50 percent.
“This expansion is an incredible milestone for our business, and we are excited about the potential this unlocks for us in the years to come,” said Scott Collignon, Hallmark’s Vice President of Logistics. “We will create new job opportunities as well as new capabilities to meet the expectations of our customers who continue to shop for our products in-stores and online.”
