JOPLIN, Mo. — The parent company of EaglePicher Technologies is planning to sell the longtime Joplin employer but no deal is imminent.
Penny Gibson, vice president of human resources at EaglePicher, said St. Louis-based VECTRA has told employees that the process of selling the company is in the early stages.
The Joplin Globe reports Gibson said EaglePicher doesn’t expect any sale to have an impact on the company’s presence or workforce in the area.
EaglePicher has several locations in Joplin and one in Pittsburg, Kansas.
