O'Sullivan Industries Ramps Up Production in Lamar, Missouri

Furniture World News on

O'Sullivan Industries reported that it will be ramping up to increase production in its Lamar, MO production facility. With an increase in sales, and in light of increased reliance on the Lamar facility, the Company reports they will hire over 100 new employees in the next few weeks. The facility will be seeking candidates to fill positions in production, material handling, and distribution to supplement the nearly 800 associates that already make their career with the Company at this location. Recruiting partners in Lamar and surrounding communities have joined the effort, with local branches of the Randstad and Manpower Staffing Firms working with O'Sullivan to find the right candidates to fill the openings. The Company says a sustained need for increased production at the Lamar plant is combined with continued increases in warehousing and distribution of sourced product. "O'Sullivan is making great strides in utilizing capacity in our North American manufacturing facility," said Kelly Terry, SVP of Operations for O'Sullivan. Candidates are invited to apply in person at O'Sullivan's Lamar facility or through its recruiting partners Randstad and Manpower.
