A manufacturer of single and multi-family residential buildings will be bringing 120 new jobs to the former Southwire building in Coffeyville. Trisha Purdon of the Montgomery County Action Council introduced Javier Garcia, the Director of Manufacturing for Prosperiti Builders and Titus Williams, the President of Prosperiti Partners during this mornings Montgomery County Commission meeting.
The Springfield, Missouri company plans to be operational by the end of the year bringing what Purdon says are 120 jobs with an average wage above the median wage for the county. Garcia said they will be hiring people with a variety of skill sets. He also cited infrastructure, access to transportation and access to a labor force as their reasons for choosing Coffeyville and Montgomery County.
Purdon said a public hearing will be conducted March 16 for the purpose of issuing industrial revenue bonds to provide incentives to the company. Prosperiti will then begin renovations to the facility, an access road and railroad improvements made with the company being fully operational by the end of the year.
