April 30, 2013

KANSAS CITY – The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced today that Indigo Wild, a producer of all-natural products for the body and home, will be expanding its manufacturing operations in Kansas City. The Indigo Wild expansion will include a capital investment of $875,000 and is expected to create 6 new full-time jobs.

Founded in 1996, Indigo Wild produces a variety of body and household products including soap, lotion, candles and household cleaning products. The company’s products are handcrafted using all-natural ingredients. Indigo Wild’s expansion at its Kansas City location includes purchase of additional space to expand production and warehouse capabilities.

Missouri’s favorable business climate and innovative resources are creating expansion around the state. Indigo Wild’s expansion is the fifth significant expansion announcement by a manufacturer in Missouri this month, joining CertainTeed Corporation (100 new jobs, $100 million capital investment) in Jonesburg, Adrian Steel (39 new jobs, $4.7 million capital investment) in Kansas City, Meramec Electrical Products (47 new jobs, 5.7 million capital investment) in Cuba and Yanfeng USA Auto Trim Systems (263 new jobs, $45 million capital investment) in Riverside. 

Some of Missouri’s resources and initiatives that have aided business expansions include the Certified Work Read Community Program, export assistance, customized job recruitment and screening, Certified Site designation, LocationOne site and building database, and others that can be found at www.ded.mo.gov.

To assist Indigo Wild with its expansion, the Department of Economic Development has authorized a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria.
