Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced that AB Mauri North America, which is headquartered in the Cortex Innovation Community, has continued to expand in St. Louis City with several new, high-paying jobs as well as plans to boost its current workforce.
Since AB Mauri relocated its North America headquarters in early 2015 from Chesterfield to the Cortex District – where it benefits by working nearby other tech-related companies – the company has grown its employee base by more than 10 percent.
“AB Mauri has brought incredible energy to the Cortex Innovation Community,” said President & CEO of the Cortex Innovation Community Dennis Lower. “We are thrilled that we provided a solution to keep them in Missouri, and their current expansion is a validation that Cortex and Missouri continue to serve their workforce needs well.
Currently, AB Mauri has created several new positions and has openings in procurement, supply, quality assurance and finance to support a new specialty blending, milling and sweet goods operation in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, that was acquired in mid-January.
Locally, AB Mauri North America was recently named an Arcus Award winner by the St. Louis Regional Chamber and recognized in the St. Louis Business Journal as having one of the ‘coolest office spaces’ in the region.
AB Mauri is a baking technology provider with two major segments, the nearly 150-year-old Fleischmann’s Yeast brand and a portfolio of bakery ingredients – such as dough improvers, mold inhibitors and softeners – for both industrial and artisan bakers.
AB Mauri was formed in 2004 as an operating division of Associated British Foods (ABF), working around the world with operations in more 50 countries and sales in more than 100 countries, with global headquarters located in Peterborough, United Kingdom.
