JRI HOLDINGS MOVES INTO NEW FACILITY

SPRINGFIELD, MO— After just over eight months of construction, JRI Holdings, Inc. has moved into its new $5.6 million, 66,000 square foot office and manufacturing facility located at 1435 N. Alliance Ave. in Springfield, Missouri.

The company first announced its intent to construct a new corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility building just over a year ago and broke ground on the project last July.

Located on 11 acres in Springfield’s Partnership Industrial Center West, the new building combines operations from two separate facilities, also located in Springfield, and will add 13 full-time jobs to the company’s current workforce of 120.

“We are very pleased with our new home,” said JRI Holdings President, Jim Jones. “Although we did consider sites in other states, the benefits of remaining in Springfield were too great to ignore. Now, we have the necessary space to better serve our worldwide customer base and to expand when the time comes.”

JRI Holdings, Inc. is the parent company to both JRI Industries, based in Springfield, Missouri, and JENFAB, based in Berlin, Connecticut. Both companies are leading nationwide manufacturers of water-based parts washers for industrial, automotive and manufacturing machine parts.
