The Missouri Department of Economic Development says Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing plans to add 110 jobs with an additional line to their current assembly department and will begin two more lines on a second shift at their Maryville facility.

Kawasaki plans to use the state’s One Start Customized Training Program to provide specific training for employees. Missouri One Start works directly with businesses to develop and deliver customized training in a variety of fields including process improvement, quality initiatives, team building, leadership, or specific technical skills.

Kawasaki manufactures small industrial gasoline engines for lawn, garden and turf products worldwide. The addition of the three assembly lines will enable the business to continue to practice social distancing as well as provide more options to working parents with children participating in online learning.
