When asked what is unique about the Neosho area, Jerry Welch, General Manager Midwest Division said “I think it’s the comradery of the community, especially the business community. You just don’t see that in a lot of communities. In Moark we are actually split up into three different regions, Western, Eastern, and the Midwest, as I look and compare to our other divisions there is a level headed, down to earth workforce, and you just don’t find that in other areas.”
Please join the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce in congratulating Moark LLC as our November Employer of the Month.
