LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. (AP) - A western Missouri company that repairs roofs, gutters and siding damaged by storms nationwide is planning to add 300 jobs to its Kansas City area workforce.
Aspen Contracting, of Lee's Summit, said Wednesday the additions will nearly triple its local employment.
Company spokesman Chris Moreno says the new jobs will be in sales, production and project management. Aspen sends its employees across the company after major storms, and Moreno says it's also planning to increase staffing in other states.
President Pat Nussbeck says Aspen is filling a void created by the downsizing or closing of other companies in the industry.
Aspen was founded in 2006. Last year, it was rated fourth in Roofing Contractor Magazine's Top 100 list.
