Gov. Jay Nixon’s administration announced recently that a Kansas City plumbing parts distributor, AMDG Enterprises Inc., doing business as Midland Metal LTD, is expanding its operations and moving to a new facility, creating 21 new jobs and making new investment of $1.1 million.
“This new investment and significant job creation is good news for the Kansas City economy,” Gov. Nixon said. “The increasing demand for its products has led AMDG Enterprises to outgrow its current facility and hire 21 more hardworking Missourians, while increasing its investment into the local economy. We will keep fighting every single day to create jobs in every corner of our state.”
To help AMDG with its expansion plan, the state of Missouri has authorized an economic incentive package that includes $66,004 in Enhanced Enterprise Zone program tax credits over five years for a replacement facility located at 3161 Wyandotte Street, Kansas City.
Enhanced Enterprise Zones are specified geographic areas designated by local governments and certified by the Department of Economic Development. Zone designation is based on certain demographic criteria, the potential to create sustainable jobs in a targeted industry and a demonstrated impact on local cluster development.
