HS Baking Plans Snack And Cracker Manufacturing Center In Joplin, Missouri
The expansion project includes the purchase of new equipment and a manufacturing plant that was previously operated by General Mills. Renovations will be underway over the next few months to build and install a new manufacturing line to produce a new line of snack and cracker products. HS Baking will immediately recruit candidates for a variety of positions, including; purchasing manager, plant engineer, packaging operators, oven and dough machine operators, and other office and warehouse positions.
“Our whole team is excited to come to Joplin and kick the factory into high gear with the help of members of the Joplin community,” said HS Baking Plant Manager Max Jones.
“This facility has a nearly 70-year history of baking quality products, and it is wonderful to see it coming back into operation so quickly after it was shut down,” said Joplin Mayor Mike Seibert. “We appreciate HS Baking for its investment in Joplin and for its sincere recognition of the proud history of this facility and its people.”
“Investments by great companies like HS Baking are the reason why Missouri leads the Midwest in manufacturing growth and our unemployment rate has been below the national average for more than two years,” Governor Jay Nixon said. “Missouri makes what the world wants, and we are proud to partner with HS Baking as they create new jobs right here in Joplin.”
As an incentive to assist HS Baking with its expansion in Missouri, 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.
