The Durham Company Plans Buffalo, Missouri, Manufacturing Plant

The Durham Company, an electrical utility distribution equipment company, plans to build a new manufacturing facility, investing $5 million and creating more than 50 new jobs in Buffalo, Missouri.

The company plans to build a 45,000 square foot facility for the manufacturing of electrical utility distribution equipment, which will enable the company to better meet their customer demand and grow their business. This project will have multiple phases over the next several years with the potential for further expansion in the future.

“The Durham Company is excited for the future growth of our company and for our expansion into the Buffalo, Missouri area,” The Durham Company CEO, G.T. Carr said. “We are looking forward to working with the City of Buffalo, the Dallas County R-I School District, Dallas County, and Missouri Department of Economic Development to provide good high paying and stable jobs into this area. As we develop our plans to meet future opportunities, we believe this will be the right place to be.”

“The Durham Company’s expansion is a testament to the fact that Missouri is the right choice for companies looking to create jobs and invest,” said Missouri Director of Economic Development Rob Dixon. “This new manufacturing facility will provide great opportunities for Missourians, and it demonstrates the potential for growth here in Missouri.”

The company used the Missouri Works program, an incentive tool to help companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

"The Dallas County Economic Development Group is thrilled to welcome The Durham Company to the Buffalo community,” Dallas County Economic Development Group Executive Director Hollie Elliot said. “This has been a true example of how community leaders come together to make opportunities possible. I look forward to continued partnerships with The Durham Company as they bring quality jobs and investment to our community."
