“We’re actually on an aggressive schedule,” said Kelly,” We’re hoping to have the outdoor crane way up by the end of this year and, hopefully, be operating in the new paint building by the end of the first quarter of next year.  Over the next five years, we’re hoping to add somewhere between 20 and 25 jobs.  Initially, we’re probably looking at somewhere between five and ten in the first year to get the process up and running.  Hopefully, if the market dictates, we’ll be able to expand year after year.”

The company is based in Jefferson City and currently employs 180 individuals.
