A national beverage bottling company is investing $30.5 million in its Joplin plant, creating 40 jobs. Refresco’s expansion, in southwest Missouri, includes adding a new production line to increase capacity at its distribution center.

The new jobs that will be added will pay an average wage ‘well above’ the county average, according to a release from the Missouri Department of Economic Development.

“We’re pleased to see a leading manufacturer like Refresco investing and creating jobs in Joplin,” said Gov. Mike Parson. “Our state’s low costs, skilled workforce, and commitment to infrastructure are producing results, including in our southwest region. We look forward to this company’s continued success in Joplin and the benefits it will provide for Missourians in the area.”

Refresco covers more than 70 manufacturing sites in Europe, Australia, and North America.
