KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Economic Development announced this week that Alpha General Contracting will move and expand their world headquarters to Kansas City.

According to the Department, the move could create more than 50 new jobs over the course of five years.

The company was a recipient of the Kansas City Chamber’s 2016 and 2017 Top 10 Small Businesses of the Year award and is also a certified SBA 8(a), HUBZONE, minority-owned business.

Alpha General Contracting began in 2005 and provides expertise in commercial, governmental, industrial and institutional structures. Large projects they have taken on in the past include the Sprint Center, Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City International Airport, and several other high profile construction projects.
