The announcement was made Tuesday morning at Economic Development Sedalia-Pettis County offices at 2615 W. Broadway.
Owners David and Julie Goodson were introduced at the announcement by EDSC President Rusty Kahrs.
“Over the past 10 years, we’ve had continuous growth and that started out this year when we acquired the assets of a competitor in the Jefferson City market, and also a new facility in Columbia with over 14,000 square feet, and with the addition that we have here in Sedalia, which is our corporate headquarters and our manufacturing base,” David Goodson explained.
“We’ve been able to add a few manufacturing jobs with an average wage of over $40,000 with full benefits,” he added. “We’re excited to have continuous growth, but none of it would have been possible without Sedalia Economic Development. Linda Christle and her staff have allowed us to grow, and I cannot explain to you how important it is for the tax incentives that have been laid out in Pettis County from the state and local level that allow us to grow our company here. There’s no better home for it.”
Impact Signs began operations in 2004 on South Marvin, later expanding to their current location on North 65 in 2006. The company now does business in seven states and two foreign countries. “We perform jobs all around. We’re a regional sign company with regional capabilities,” Goodson noted.
“We are pleased to, once again, have this growth from one of our companies,” said Economic Development Board President Rusty Kahrs. “Our existing companies will continue to be the foundation of our community.”
The business, located at 22705 North Highway 65, will employ 25 people upon completion of the project, it was noted.
