R&S Machining Inc., a local aerospace manufacturer, will invest $13.5 million to expand its two manufacturing centers in south St. Louis County, Missouri.
The company will expand and upgrade its current location on Baumgartner Road, while purchasing and equiping a new plant on Ferry Road. R&S expects to hire 60 additional associates.
“R&S Inc. started in the St. Louis region and is excited to stay and grow here,” said Doug Rasmussen, consultant to R&S Machining. “The support they received from the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and other economic development partners was highly impactful in their decision to expand locally.”
“The company ultimately decided that staying in the area will not only benefit the company itself, but also the region,” said Rodney Crim, CEO & President of the STL Partnership. “The relocation will create 60 new full-time permanent jobs and will retain 48 existing jobs.”
