A water and wastewater transmission and treatment construction company, Garney Construction, will invest $1.5 million to expand its operations in Kansas City, Missouri, with estimates of creating 40 full-time jobs.
Founded in 1961, Garney Construction specializes in the construction of water and wastewater pipelines, treatment facilities, pump stations and water storage tanks. The company is 100 percent employee-owned and has a 750-member workforce across seven states, Missouri Department of Economic Development said. The expansion project will include improvements to Garney’s Kansas City facility and expand the company’s current footprint across the region.
State economic development officials said some of Missouri’s resources and initiatives that have aided business expansions include the Certified Work Read Community Program, export assistance, customized job recruitment and screening, Certified Site designation, and its LocationOne site and building database.
To assist Garney Construction with its expansion, the Department of Economic Development has authorized a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria.
