Doyle Equipment Manufacturing and Riverview Manufacturing, worldwide leaders in manufacturing dry fertilizer handling equipment, will expand operations in Palmyra, Missouri. The $1 million project is expected to create 30 jobs.
The companies will add 80,000 square feet of production space, which will allow Riverview, manufacturer of Doyle equipment and parts, to meet increased product demand.
“By increasing manufacturing space for our Tender Product Lines and Automated Blending Systems, we will be creating new jobs in Marion County,” said Doyle Enterprises President Monty Doyle. “That means more people who will stop at local gas stations going to and from work, eat in local restaurants over lunch breaks, and shop at local stores when heading home. We have also seen more and more Illinois employees moving into Marion County.”
Doyle and Riverview used the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.
“We’re pleased to see both Doyle Manufacturing and Riverview Manufacturing expanding their operations and creating more opportunities for Missourians,” said Maggie Kost, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “This project is a testament to Missouri’s advantages, as well as the ability of our state’s economic development partners to deliver what businesses need when expanding. The growth of these companies will have a positive impact on their local economy that will benefit residents of Marion County for years to come.”
Doyle and Riverview’s expansion was also supported by the Hannibal Regional Economic Development Council (HREDC) and Marion County, among other public and private partners.
“Doyle Manufacturing has been a great corporate citizen for many years, and I appreciate the family’s continued investment in Marion County,” said Corey Mehaffy, Executive Director of the HREDC. “When this company moved from Quincy in 2016, it employed 85 people, and this new expansion will take Doyle to over 240 employees with 275,000 square feet of production space. An investment of this magnitude in rural Marion County is a real testament to the economic vitality of the area and will spur additional investment.”
Doyle Equipment Manufacturing provides quality dry fertilizer blending, conveying, tending, and spreading equipment. The company has been the leading manufacturer of bulk blenders for dry fertilizer since introducing the first rotary style drum blender in 1961.
