SIKESTON, MO—Carlisle Construction Materials LLC (CCM), a manufacturer of premium building products and related technologies, is investing $62 million and creating 100 new jobs at a new 455,000 square foot production and manufacturing facility here. This facility will be its fiftieth location nationwide.

"The new polyiso facility adds to our industry leading capabilities and represents the company's ongoing commitment to delivering a world-class customer experience," says Nick Shears, president of CCM. "It is strategically located to better serve the central U.S. and will result in improved service for CCM customers in the region. The production of energy-saving insulation and reduction of shipping lanes are both important to Carlisle's environmental, social and governance leadership position."

Carlisle selected Missouri due to its central location, which will help reduce lead times as regional demand continues to grow for construction materials. The state's workforce, low cost of doing business, and community support also helped attract the new investment. The company plans to begin construction this summer.

Carlisle joins a growing list of companies that have recently announced plans to open new facilities in Missouri, including Accenture Federal Services, Chewy Inc. and Melaleuca, Inc.
