Governor Mike Parson announced an expansion of Bayer that will bring a significant number of new, high-paying jobs to the St. Louis area at 12:30 pm on July 16, 2019. Bayer’s North American Crops Science division will be moving 500 new jobs to Creve Coeur. The announcement comes after Governor Parson’s first European trade mission, where he traveled internationally to highlight Missouri as an ideal location for business. The announcement took place in the Governor’s office in the state capital.
“We are honored that a global company like Bayer has chosen to grow its presence here in our state,” Governor Parson said. “As you know, agriculture plays a critical role in our economy, and Bayer’s investment will only enhance Missouri’s strengths in the agricultural technology sector. We look forward to working together as we continue to grow and expand the industry.”
“We are proud to call Missouri home to our Global Headquarters for seeds and traits and the North American Crop Science Commercial Headquarters,” said Lisa Safarian, President, Commercial Operations North America at Bayer. “Governor Parson has been an important advocate for Bayer and the entire business community in Missouri, and I am honored to join him in marking this important day.”
