Chamber: New factory bringing jobs to Poplar Bluff

Groundbreaking for empire comfort systems

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - A brand new factory is coming to Poplar Bluff and bringing new jobs with it.

According to the chamber of commerce Empire Comfort Systems will break ground on a new 130,000 square-foot manufacturing facility.

The company has committed to bringing in more than 100 jobs over the next two years.

The chamber president says this is the first brand new facility like this in nearly three decades.

“We’ve had many successes in the last few years with new manufacturers taking over existing buildings and manufacturers expanding in Poplar Bluff," said Chamber of Commerce President Steve Halter. "However, we’re excited that this is our first new manufacturer with a new ground-up building in almost 30 years. I believe that empire comfort will be a great fit for our community.”

Construction is expected to start in the near future.
