LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City area company is getting state aid to relocate its headquarters to a bigger building in a different suburb.
The Missouri Department of Economic Development says it has authorized about $500,000 of incentives for the expansion project by Holland 1916.
The company is relocating its headquarters and three of its five manufacturing subsidiaries from North Kansas City to Liberty. The state says the move includes a nearly $13 million capital investment and 62 new jobs.
Holland 1916 is the parent company for firms that make identification products for branding, operating and safety information.
