Pivot Bio Establishes Hazelwood, Missouri, Operations

Pivot Bio, a sustainable agriculture company, plans to establish operations in Hazelwood, Missouri. The more than $20 million project is expected to create 41 jobs.

The new 47,000-square-foot facility will increase the company’s capabilities for research, testing, and development of product applications.

“We’re thrilled to see an industry leader like Pivot Bio contributing to our state’s fast-growing ag-tech sector,” said Michelle Hataway, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “This company is developing innovative solutions for agriculture while bringing new jobs and investment to Hazelwood. We’re grateful for our partners who are helping Missourians prosper through their assistance with this exciting project.”

The project is being supported by 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 expansion of Pivot Bio's footprint in the City of Hazelwood is another example of how businesses are prospering in our service territory,” noted Mark Birk, President and Chairman of Ameren Missouri. “We are thrilled they chose to grow their business in North County by building a new research facility and adding new jobs, which benefits the entire local community. Ameren Missouri’s Smart Energy Plan continues to be instrumental in making the region more attractive for businesses to grow here while also providing reliable energy to power the communities we serve.”
