Cargill Adding Jobs in Marshall

Dozens of news jobs are headed to Mid-Missouri after Cargill announced plans to add 50 jobs to its Marshall plant.The $15 million expansion will include a new production line for value-added food products at the facility. That production line has already been built, which means the company expects to begin hiring soon.The jobs announcement came on the same day the state released data showing the unemployment rate dropped to 6.7 percent.”We are not at the finish line yet, you know, 6.7 percent unemployment not where we want to get,” said Gov. Jay Nixon. “This is a win for the local economy and a win for the state of Missouri.”Cargill is the second company in Saline County to expand in less than a month and the president of the Marshall plant says it could open up a number of opportunities for the area.”It takes our business in another direction, a positive direction, that direction being growth,” said president Jody Horner.Nixon and state economic leaders were on-hand for the announcement because the company could be eligible for an economic incentive from the state if it meets the program’s job creation and investment requirements.
