Cooperative Response Center (CRC), a nationwide contact and alarm monitoring center, recently announced plans to open a new facility in Kirksville, Missouri. The announcement represents more than $1 million in capital investment and is expected to create 87 new jobs in the region.
“This company’s new facility is an exciting development for Kirksville and the broader north Missouri region,” Governor Mike Parson said. “Our workforce development priorities and job training programs have strengthened our economy, and companies are looking to our state to grow and expand. Congratulations to Cooperative Response Center on its success as it creates good-paying jobs that will support Missourians and their families for years to come.”
CRC provides inbound customer and dispatching services to more than 450 electric utilities nationwide. Each year, CRC receives more than 6 million calls from members and customers of electric cooperatives and municipal utilities. The company is currently training staff at Moberly Area Community College’s Kirksville campus to fill positions created as part of its expansion.
“We’re excited to be a part of the Kirksville community,” said Chris Holt, President and CEO of CRC. “As we welcome our new teammates, we look forward to the opportunities that opening a fourth location brings to CRC, in addition to the support for our membership.”
The new facility will be CRC’s first Missouri location and allow the company to meet increasing demand for its services.
“We are excited to welcome CRC to the community,” said Carolyn Chrisman, Executive Director of KREDI, Innovation Center, and Small Business Center. “It was a pleasure to work with them to locate, and we look forward to what the future holds.”
