Cook Portable Warehouses Opens $2 Million Manufacturing Plant In Joplin, Missouri

An industry leader in the manufacturing of portable residential and commercial sheds, Cook Portable Warehouses opened its newly built $2 million manufacturing facility in Joplin, Missouri. The company’s expansion is expected to create up to 80 new jobs over the next 12 months.

With the addition of the Joplin location, the company now operates five manufacturing facilities and more than 300 sales offices across the United States, employing a total of 250 workers nationwide. The new 79,000-square-foot Joplin manufacturing facility will help Cook Portable Warehouses access currently untapped markets and will support approximately 100 new sales offices to be established across Missouri.

“The Joplin location represents our fifth manufacturing facility that will ultimately result in approximately 80 new jobs for the region,” said Greg Cook, Co-Founder/President of Cook Portable Warehouses. “The economic incentives, quality workforce, and the geographic location are what attracted us to Joplin. We could not be happier with our decision to locate here, and we look forward to being a part of the community for many years to come.”

As an incentive to assist Cook Portable Warehouses with its expansion in Joplin, the Missouri Department of Economic Development has offered a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria.
