SPRINGFIELD — A southwest Missouri company that makes stainless steel tanks for several industries is planning a major expansion.

Gov. Jay Nixon was scheduled to join officials of Paul Mueller Co. in Springfield on Wednesday to announce details. Nixon's office said Tuesday that the expansion will create hundreds of jobs during the next three years.

Paul Mueller Co. designs and makes stainless steel tanks and other equipment for the food, dairy, beverage, chemical, biofuels, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and pure water industries.

The 70-year-old company is headquartered in Springfield and has 450 employees in the metro area. It also has operations in the Netherlands.
