Consolidated Machine and Welding Expands Hannibal, Missouri, Manufacturing Center

A full service metal fabrication shop that provides state-of-the-art laser technology for customized products, Consolidated Machine and Welding will expand its facility in Hannibal, Missouri. The $4.3 million project is expected to create 30 new jobs.

The company’s expansion includes the purchase of a vacant building which will allow for expanded powder coating, assembly, and warehousing capabilities.

“Consolidated Machine and Welding has consistently expanded over the course of more than 25 years,” said Andy Fishback, President of Consolidated Machine and Welding. “We are fortunate to be in the Northeast Missouri region, which offers great opportunities and labor resources. We are committed to growth and expansion, which is made possible through our relationship with public economic development partnerships.”

For their expansion, Consolidated Machine and Welding 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.

“It’s great to see this Missouri business find success and experience growth,” Department of Economic Development Director Rob Dixon said. “Consolidated Machine and Welding’s expansion demonstrates that our state is a prime location for business. With a world-class workforce and a well-established manufacturing industry, businesses like this will continue to thrive in Missouri.”

Started in 1993, Consolidated Machine & Welding has become a local leader in metal fabrication and machine shop services. The company provides quality craftsmanship and quick turnaround for a countless number of items ranging from ancillary products needed by various manufacturers to short runs and one-offs requested by other facilities.

“Consolidated Machine and Welding has been a great corporate citizen in Hannibal for many years and I appreciate their continued investment in the community,” said Corey Mehaffy, Executive Director of the Hannibal Regional Economic Development Council. “An investment of this magnitude is a real testament to the quality of our workforce and speaks to the economic vitality of the region. This project is a great example of the importance of public/private partnerships and what can be accomplished when we work together.”
