Glen Martin adds more than 100 jobs
While the news is filled with concerns of a slowing economy, a major Boonville employer is expanding its operations – and with that growth, offering more than 100 jobs.
Glen Martin recently announced its expansion plans as it positions itself to increase its share of the U.S. communications market. This locally-owned company is a well-known international supplier of communications equipment and supplies.
“As other companies are falling out of the business, we’re focusing on the U.S. market,” said Tatum Martin, vice president of operation. He said by March 1, Glen Martin had already reached $16 million in sales, and is targeting $80 million for the year.
Martin said the company is adding a third shift at its Boonville manufacturing plant which will add 33 positions, with starting pay ranging from $9.50 to $11 per hour. The company also is looking to hire nine or 10 people in the accounting, sales and customer service departments.
