Canadian Manufacturer to Build Plant in Missouri

Kansas City, MO – Ontario, Canada-based Martinrea International Inc. has said it will develop a 275,560-square-foot auto parts manufacturing plant in the Kansas City suburb of Riverside.

The plant will rest on a 15.2 acre site and create as many as 290 jobs when it opens early next year.

The company will receive as much as $2.6 million through the Missouri Works tax credit program and $640,000 through the Missouri Works training program if it meets job creation and investment criteria.

Martinrea partnered with the Kansas City-based Tutera Group to develop the new plant, which will manufacture automotive assemblies and welded corrosion-resistant engine cradles for the General Motors’ Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City.

The Canadian company chalked-up $3 billion in annual sales last year generated by the labor of 13,000 people at 38 locations on four continents.

The company produces steel and aluminum parts, assemblies and modules, and fluid management systems, largely for the automotive sector.
