MATCON Expanding, Adding 150 Jobs To Area

Updated:

MATCON is expanding in a move that will create 150 new jobs in the area. Material Control Systems, Inc. (MATCON) is building a $10 million logistics facility in East Moline.

The move will quadruple their Illinois workforce as their business grows.

"MATCON is a company with a long history in Illinois going back to the 1930s," said Governor Quinn, in a release. "Its commitment to grow here in the heart of the heartland is a testament to Illinois' skilled workforce and our longstanding role as the nation's central transportation and distribution hub."

The new 100,000-square-foot East Moline warehouse will assist in the distribution of the company's packaging and shipping products. MATCON was established by the Larson family in the 1930s as a wood packaging company primarily for a local manufacturing firm.

"I'd like to thank the State of Illinois, the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, and THE National Bank for making this new facility a reality and in the process creating 150 new jobs for the Quad Cities area," MATCON owner and president Donn Larson said.
