EDCKC was proud to support in bringing ALPLA Inc., North America to KCMO. ALPLA will break ground on a new manufacturing plant at the Blue River Commerce Center (I-49 & Bannister Road), creating 75 new jobs.
With a capital investment of $18.5 million, the new facility will be the company’s fourth site in Missouri and the first dedicated to injection molding. The company also looks forward to giving back to the KC community.
To date, ALPLA has funded numerous STEM and STEAM-based labs and classes while encouraging high school students to build careers related to engineering. The company is also an active supporter of women empowerment initiatives and volunteerism in the senior community.
