SIKESTON, Mo. — Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM), a manufacturer and supplier of premium building products and related technologies, has officially opened its newest facility in Sikeston. Local, regional, and state leaders joined company executives in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the facility Thursday.
“We’re proud that Carlisle Construction Materials chose to expand its business here in Missouri,” said Governor Mike Parson. “This investment is a testament to our state’s talented workforce, business-friendly environment, and great quality of life that has made Missouri an ideal location for leading manufacturing companies like Carlisle. We look forward to seeing how this facility and the job opportunities it creates will make southeast Missouri an even stronger place to live and work.”
CCM is a national leader in the roofing industry that serves residential and construction markets. The company’s new Sikeston facility is the company’s second location in Missouri, with more than fifty locations worldwide. CCM invested more than $100 million in the nearly 500,000-square-foot production and manufacturing facility, which will create 100 jobs in the Sikeston region.
“We at Carlisle are grateful for the warm welcome we have received from the State of Missouri and the people of Sikeston,” said Steve Schwar, President of Carlisle Construction Materials. “This brand-new plant, which will create 100 jobs in the Sikeston region, is Carlisle’s second location in Missouri. Carlisle is committed to success and growth here in Sikeston, which is an ideal location to serve our strategic and growing markets. As a company, Carlisle is very focused on being a good steward of the environment. That’s why this plant, which produces energy-efficient insulation products, was built with the goal of achieving LEED Platinum status, which is a globally recognized symbol of superior sustainability achievement.”
CCM chose to open its new facility in Missouri due to the state’s central location, skilled workforce, and low cost of business. The facility was designed and constructed to maximize energy efficiency and reduce carbon, demonstrating its commitment to sustainability. CCM is currently pursuing LEED Platinum certification.
“Carlisle Construction Materials’ new facility is an exciting development for Sikeston and our state’s thriving construction industry,” said Michelle Hataway, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “We’re grateful to all our partners who assisted with this project and look forward to seeing Carlisle Construction Materials helping Missourians prosper in Sikeston and beyond.”
