MiTek plans new Hazelwood facility, could add 200 jobs



Chesterfield-based MiTek Industries is planning an expansion in Hazelwood that city officials say could add 200 jobs over several years.

MiTek, a supplier of engineered products, software and services for the construction industry, is eyeing the 30-acre site left vacant when packaging manufacturer Printpack shuttered its facility last year and laid off 115 employees.

The Hazelwood City Council took an initial vote Wednesday to approve Chapter 100 bond financing for the new MiTek facility. The incentive package would provide MiTek with 15 years of property tax abatement, according to Hazelwood economic development officials.

MiTek, a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary, declined to comment on the project. In the metro area, MiTek recently built a new headquarters in Chesterfield and also operates a facility in St. Charles.
