Cooperative Response Establishes Kirksville, Missouri, Operations Center
The new facility will be CRC’s first Missouri location and allow the company to meet increasing demand for its services, according to state officials.
“We’re excited to be a part of the Kirksville community,” said Chris Holt, President and CEO of CRC. “As we welcome our new teammates, we look forward to the opportunities that opening a fourth location brings to CRC, in addition to the support for our membership.”
CRC 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. 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 excited that the Cooperative Response Center chose Missouri for the location of its newest facility,” said Department of Economic Development Acting Director Maggie Kost. “This investment will have a positive impact for the Kirksville area and create even more quality jobs in the region. Our commitment to workforce development continues to result in business expansions that create opportunities for Missourians.”
Founded in 1992, CRC’s Central Station is a CSAA Five-Diamond certified, UL-listed full service central station providing security, environmental, and medical alarm monitoring, as well as video verified asset monitoring services. The company provides inbound customer and dispatching services to more than 450 electric utilities nationwide.
“We are excited to welcome CRC to the community,” said Carolyn Chrisman, Executive Director of KREDI, Innovation Center, and Small Business Center. “It was a pleasure to work with them to locate, and we look forward to what the future holds.”
