Simcote Plans Selects Sedalia, Missouri, For Manufacturing Plant

Simcote, Inc., founded to epoxy-coat and fabricate reinforcing steel, or rebar, will establish a 67,000-square-foot plant in Sedalia, Missouri. The $17 million project is expected to create 35 jobs.

The new facility will include the latest in coating, fabrication, and safety technology while positioning the company to be an industry leader in sustainable infrastructure products. Simcote plans to soon begin construction in Summer 2023.

“We are a family business that values our employees, customers, vendors, and the communities we operate in,” said Adam Simmet, President of Simcote. “When we explored locations that support our core values and assist in delivering the highest quality products to our customers, Sedalia became the obvious choice. We look forward to growing our business in this great community.”

For the expansion Simcote will utilize 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. The company is also receiving assistance from Missouri One Start, a division of the Department of Economic Development. Missouri One Start assists eligible businesses with their recruitment and training needs.

“We’re thrilled to see a great employer like Simcote join Sedalia’s growing manufacturing center,” noted Michelle Hataway, Deputy Director of the Department of Economic Development. “Missouri’s many business advantages continue to attract leading companies that are investing in communities and creating jobs. Simcote is a third-generation family-owned business that will create even more opportunities for Missourians to prosper.”

Simcote is one of the original companies founded to epoxy-coat and fabricate reinforcing steel, or rebar. To date the company has fabricated and delivered over 1 million tons of epoxy-coated rebar to projects across North America. Simcote is also actively involved in the concrete reinforcing industry.
