KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A new Hillman distribution hub in Belton has opened, according to a company announcement Tuesday.

The hardware company invested $3 million and relocated the 305,000-square-foot facility from California. The facility began fulfilling shipments this month, according to the organization.

“We’re proud that a leading company like Hillman has recognized Missouri as an ideal location for business,” Governor Mike Parson said in a press release. “Our state’s advantages, including its strategic location, strong infrastructure, and low business costs, continue to attract investments from innovative companies. We look forward to Hillman’s success as it grows and creates jobs in the Kansas City area.”

Hillman partnered with the Missouri Works program, which offers companies capital or tax credits for creating jobs.

“We’re excited for this significant investment from Hillman, which will benefit Kansas City and our state,” Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development Maggie Kost said in a release. “Missouri is already home to a growing number of employers in manufacturing, distribution, and other related industries. Hillman is a welcome addition that will provide more opportunities for Missourians.”
