Eigel-press release (2)JEFFERSON CITY — Senator Bill Eigel, R-Weldon Spring, is pleased to join other community leaders in welcoming Amazon to St. Charles County.

“This is outstanding news for my constituents and for the state of Missouri,” Sen. Eigel said. “This new facility will provide not only new employment opportunities for my constituents, but offer the type of jobs that are friendly to growing families.”

The company offers comprehensive benefits including retirement, disability insurance and Amazon healthcare and more to its full-time employees.
