Governor Jay Nixon visits Magna Seating facility


Governor Jay Nixon addressed Magna Seating plant managers and employees, as well as Excelsior Springs community leaders, Ford Union officials and Clay County representatives about continued expansion of Missouri's automotive industry. Pictured above with Governor Nixon are Magna Seating General Manager John Tarpley, left, and Excelsior Springs Mayor Ambrose Buckman.

Governor Jay Nixon visited Magna Seating of America Inc. in Excelsior Springs on February 5. The visit followed Ford's announcement to create 900 additional jobs at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant to build the next-generation F-150 pickup. Magna Seating is one of hundreds of manufacturers that supply Ford on a daily basis.
Governor Nixon made automotive manufacturing a priority in our state in 2010. At that time, Governor Nixon was able to work across the aisle and get the Missouri Manufacturing Jobs Act passed. Magna Seating completed a renovation to manufacture complete seating systems for Ford's Transit van, that added more than 100 jobs here.
"Ford's commitment to the state of Missouri has created good growth opportunities for suppliers like Magna," said John Tarpley, general manager of Magna Seating in Excelsior Springs. "We are pleased to be supporting Ford and contributing to the state's automotive industry resurgence."

North Kansas City Avenue project



The North Kansas City Avenue replacement project began Monday, October 27. Pyramid Constractors, Inc. are the company contracted to complete the work. The panels are now in place and the footers have been poured. Remaining work is being done as weather permits, with an anticipated completion in March.
A temporary stop sign will be installed for northbound Dunbar Ave. at Beverly Ave. near Sunnyside Park. Additional traffic signs will require traffic flowing up Beverly approaching Dunbar to make a right turn only onto Dunbar, but they can do so without stopping. The change will allow traffic coming up the Beverly Ave. hill to avoid stopping, which could be difficult during the winter weather. When the North Kansas City Ave. project is complete, the temporary signs will be removed and the traffic flow will be back to normal.
