Hillyard Invests in Redevelopment and Expansion Project in Downtown St. Joseph

Posted by THE Cleaning Resource on Mar 10, 2016 2:01:00 PM

March 10, 2016

(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) - Hillyard Industries, a leading manufacturer and distributor of cleaning and hygiene solutions located in St. Joseph since 1907, is pleased to announce the purchase of property owned by WireCo WorldGroup (WireCo), a manufacturer and distributor of wire and synthetic rope. As part of this agreement, Hillyard will build a new manufacturing and national distribution center on 25 acres directly north of their current facilities. 

Both companies share a commitment to the vitality of downtown St. Joseph and are making plans to preserve and promote that purpose. Hillyard has a goal to relocate and modernize their manufacturing and warehousing operations, which have been located downtown since the 1930s. Administrative offices will remain in their current location.

"WireCo has a long history in St. Joseph and we wanted that legacy preserved to the best of our ability. Hillyard Industries is a  natural fit as their continued commitment to downtown and the local community is an optimal next step for the WireCo property. While we are very disappointed that our St. Joseph employees are so negatively affected by the plant closing, we will be pleased to see this redevelopment come to fruition," said Chris Ayers, CEO of WireCo. 

Demolition and construction are slated to begin between 2019 and 2020, with the goal of Hillyard being fully operational in their new facility beginning in 2021 or 2022. WireCo plans to close its manufacturing facility, while continuing the fabrication division of its current location.
