Trussworks Mid-America Plans Jackson, Missouri, Manufacturing Operations

Truss manufacturer Trussworks Mid-America plans to establish production operations in Jackson, Missouri. The $5 million project is expected to create 70 jobs.

The new facility will be located in a Cape Girardeau County Enhanced Enterprise Zone, which provides a 50 percent real property tax abatement for ten years. Operations are scheduled to begin later this year.

“We are excited to embark on this expansion journey and to establish our new facility in Jackson,” said Steve Stroder, President and CEO of Trussworks Mid-America, LLC. “With the support of the Missouri Department of Economic Development, local authorities, and our dedicated team, we are confident in our ability to drive success and contribute positively to the local economy. This investment underscores our commitment to delivering exceptional products to our customers while creating jobs and opportunities for the community.”

Trussworks will also benefit from 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.

“DED is proud to support Trussworks as it establishes in Jackson and creates new opportunities for Missourians to prosper,” noted Michelle Hataway, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “We appreciate the collaborative efforts of our partners who helped ensure this company brings new investment and job creation to southeast Missouri.”

In addition, the investment is being supported by a $787,812 grant from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program to construct and improve public infrastructure, including streets, water distribution, stormwater, and sanitary sewer, to make the project possible.

“We are encouraged to see this significant investment and job creation by Trussworks in southeast Missouri,” added Shad Burner, Management Consultant for SEMO REDI. “This expansion will not only bolster Jackson’s local economy but also reaffirm our attractiveness for business growth and development. This project perfectly highlights the collaborative efforts among business leaders, government officials, and SEMO REDI to drive sustained prosperity in our region.”

Trussworks designs and builds wood trusses for individuals, general contractors, and builders. In addition to standard wood floor trusses and wood roof trusses, the company also supplies timber trusses, timber products (posts and beams), engineered wood products (posts and beams), Simpson Construction hardware, and wall panels.
