Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) broke ground on June 4th for the latest expansion of its Springfield, Missouri headquarters. The $7 million project will provide growth space for many of the company’s functions as well as the addition of approximately 65 new jobs over the next two years. The new space will enable DMP to meet the increasing demand for its industry-leading array of intrusion, fire, access control, and network and cellular communication products. Project completion is planned for summer 2016.
“In the company’s 40 years, we have had to move or expand our facility about every four years to create the space needed to keep up with growth,” said President and CEO, Rick Britton. “This kind of sustained growth is possible only because of the innovative spirit and dedication of DMP employees to provide the members of the DMP-authorized dealer network with industry-leading security technology. Everyone at DMP is excited about the prospects of further growth and being able to serve even more customers both here in the US and the other countries DMP is now entering.”
The company moved to various, existing facilities in its early days and In 1987, it moved to the first building built exclusively for DMP on Industrial Drive in Springfield. The company moved to its current location in the fall of 2000, aptly located at the corner of Partnership Boulevard and Progress Place. Warehouse space at the current location has more than tripled since then. The most recent expansion added 35,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and warehouse space in 2011.
