Peerless Products Establishes Nevada, Missouri, Facility

Windows and doors manufacturer Peerless Products, Inc., will expand operations in Nevada, Missouri. The $3.5 million project is expected to create 111 jobs.

The expansion will increase production capacity at the existing 220,000-square-foot facility, which employs more than 40 people and is currently being used for warehousing, manufacturing, and research and development.

“We have expansions in the manufacturing side of things that we have to develop into and this facility is going to give that opportunity,” said Jeremiah Richards, Innovative Solutions Director for Peerless. “Western Missouri, Eastern Kansas, these are places that have hardworking people that build good quality products. I think over the course of this year, the facility, getting it back up to standards to be a manufacturing plant is the goal, and with that comes certain aspects. Right now, it’s a finished goods facility only. In the next 60 days, we hope to make it somewhat of a raw goods facility.”

Peerless 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.

“It’s exciting to see Peerless Products growing in Nevada, and we look forward to the positive impact its success will have on the community,” Governor Mike Parson said. “Our state’s pro-growth business environment is resulting in investments that make real differences in the lives of Missourians. We’re proud to support companies like Peerless as we continue our focus on developing a strong workforce, improving critical infrastructure, and creating opportunity.”

Peerless Architectural Windows and Doors, founded in Fort Scott, Kansas in 1952, is a Mid-western manufacturer of high performance aluminum architectural and commercial windows for new, replacement and historical construction.

“Peerless Products’ expansion is another example of a success achieved by stakeholders working together to benefit their community and state,” said Maggie Kost, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “Peerless is investing in Nevada and creating jobs that will support local workers and their families. Our team is grateful to assist with this project and joins each of our partners in congratulating the company and community.”
