European Auto Supplier to Expand in O'Fallon, Create 31 Jobs
O'Fallon, MO, (SLFP.com), March 15, 2015 - The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) has announced that Universal Components Group (UCG), a UK-based aftermarket automotive parts supplier, will expand operations to the U.S., selecting O'Fallon as the location for its first ever North American distribution center. The expansion project includes a $765,000 capital investment and is expected to create 31 new jobs.
"As a top state for vehicle production, Missouri's automotive industry continues to rev up and create good jobs for families here in St. Charles County and across the Show-Me State," said Gov. Jay Nixon. "From major manufacturing plants to small suppliers, Missouri is a hub for next-generation vehicle production and today's announcement by Universal Components Group builds on this success."
UCG is a specialist independent wholesale distribution business for commercial vehicle, truck, and semi-trailer components. As the largest independent distributor of aftermarket parts in the UK, the company supplies to more than 1,000 distribution outlets worldwide. Due to its close business relationship with Wainwright Industries in Wentzville, UCG has decided to expand to an approximately 10,000 square-foot warehouse and distribution center in St. Charles County. This will be the company's first North American location.
"Universal Components Group is very excited about the new location in O'Fallon. The U.S. market is a great opportunity for us. The support we have received from the Missouri DED and our Sister company Wainwright Industries has allowed us to get our distribution footprint in place very quickly," said David Kernahan, CEO of UCG. "The business model that we are starting with has had proven success and we are confident in the next few years we will be able to grow as we have done in the U.K. UCG will continue to make significant investment into the area that will help us to be successful for a long time to come."

The Department of Labor Warns of Email Phishing Attempt
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), February 1, 2015 - The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations warns that some unemployment insurance claimants have received emails that have been identified in other states as a phishing scam.
"Because of the vigilant eye of a claims specialist and a concerned claimant, the Department has been able to warn and prevent others of a potential scam," said Ryan McKenna, Director of the Missouri Labor Department. "The Department continually strives to maintain the integrity of Missouri's Unemployment Insurance system for both businesses and jobseekers.'
The suspected emails were sent from "Unemployment Advisory Department" and used one of two subjects: "Required Documents to File Unemployment in MO" or "Verfication Required: Final Notice". Email scams will often include misspellings or other common mistakes.
If you received this email, delete it immediately and do not click on the links as the website is requesting personal identifiable information that could be used in an act of fraud or theft.
The Missouri Department of Labor will never request personal information through email. Furthermore, unemployment claims can only be filed by using either the secure, online filing system (labor.mo.gov/DES/claims or moclaim.mo.gov) or by calling a Regional Claims Center. A third party entity cannot file a claim on claimant's behalf.
