LEBANON, Mo -- A Lebanon company that makes metal stamping and fabricated components for a broad range of industries is significantly expanding its operations for the second time in two years, Gov. Jay Nixon announced Friday. Detroit Tool and Metal Products, which is nearing the completion of its first expansion that is creating 125 jobs, is also planning a second major expansion that will create another 75 new local positions.
The Governor was joined by company leadership and local officials today at the company’s facility in Lebanon. Detroit Tool and Metal Products’ first expansion consolidated a former facility in Iowa with its existing operation in Lebanon, a 77,000 square-foot building that the company leases from the city of Lebanon. That first expansion has already created 115 new jobs on the way to 125. The company’s second expansion will involve constructing a 35,000 square-foot addition, which will create another 75 new jobs.
