PolySol Relocates Headquarters To Farmington, Missouri
PolySol bulk manufactures a liquid plastic coating called plastisol, which is used by every major industry from military and automotive to industrial belting, agriculture, construction and more.
Farmington beat out 10 other communities in the site selection process where PolySol is now leasing 20,000 sq. ft. of an industrial building and has already hired six of the 17 new positions.
“We’re poised to see nothing but growth for the next few years,” said PolySol Co-owner Jason Marler. “We saw an opening in the market, and because the existing skilled labor force in the area, we were able to act with confidence. We’re excited to call Farmington our new home, and we’re committed to growing in and with the community.”
Marler added the professionalism and strong interest from the Farmington Economic Development Board helped the company decide on Farmington.
To assist PolySol with its relocation, the Missouri Department of Economic Development has offered a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation criteria. The Farmington Economic Development Board was a key partner in making the expansion happen.
“The Farmington IDA is so excited to welcome PolySol to the community,” said Marlene Brockmiller, Executive Director of the Farmington Economic Development Board. “Jason and his team have already built an amazing company with tremendous potential, and we look forward to working with them for years to come. Many people in the community came together to make this a reality, and we are proud PolySol chose Farmington.”
“PolySol is proof that Missouri’s strong manufacturing industry helps attract more manufacturing,” said Mike Downing, Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “Close proximity to major manufacturing operations creates logistical advantages, and the state’s business climate is ranked one of the best in the nation. We’re thrilled to help welcome PolySol to Missouri’s manufacturing lineup.”
