R.R. Donnelly will add 105 jobs by the end of the year at its Owensville facility. The state is providing about $1.5 million in incentives.
Governor Nixon was on hand Monday as officials at commercial printing firm RR Donnelly announced the addition of 105 new jobs to the 340 member workforce. The company recently purchased two new printing presses and started three new binding lines at a cost of $6 million. The workers should be hired by the end of the year.
