Nixon announces incentives for SE Mo. company

PORTAGEVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- A southeast Missouri business that makes chrome-plated plastic auto parts is receiving state aid to train its employees.

Gov. Jay Nixon said Thursday that Missouri is providing up to $809,000 of job training services for 350 employees at SRG Global in Portageville. He says the training incentives are part of a $4.2 million capital investment by the company.

The job training will be provided through Three Rivers Community College and will focus on mechanical and electrical skills, safety and team building.

The Community College Job Retention Training Program provides aid to businesses that retain a substantial number of existing jobs in Missouri.
