      "Right now we have plans to hire about 100 people this year," said CEO Shane Mayes. "We are actively seeking people right now. We do provide training. Really what we are looking for is the best and brightest in the region and also those people that we can provide training to get them into these jobs fairly quickly." Mayes hopes to expand the company across the Show-Me-State.

      "The thing that excites me about our recent expansion is that we have a real opportunity here to completely revitalized this region and retool the economic side of the are from what was a manufacturing and agricultural based economy to a group of thought workers to where we can export our knowledge outside of Macon and Northeast Missouri and really make a difference and create a lot of jobs," Mayes said.
