MOUNT PLEASANT – The two have become one. Not unlike a wedding, Golden Eagle Distributing has taken its Burlington and Ottumwa facilities and united them into its new $5 million building located in Mount Pleasant's Crossroads Industrial Park. The intention was to centralize the company's southeast Iowa operation and make it more efficient.
"The whole construction process was exciting," said Crissy Riesenbeck-Spratt, general manager of the Mount Pleasant facility.
Ground was broken on July 28, and with only 14 delay dates, construction went largely as planned. Arco Construction Co., based in St. Louis, served as the general contractor and used 52 subcontractors to complete the project. GMA Design Group Inc., a St. Louis architectural firm, handled the design work for the two buildings located at 500 Golden Eagle Drive.
"It will allow better communication and more space to utilize," said Michael Riesenbeck, branch manager of Golden Eagle's Hannibal, Mo. facility.
Golden Eagle has two distributorships in Missouri, one in Hannibal and the other in Kirksville. Richard Riesenbeck, Crissy's and Michael's father, is the president and owner of the Missouri and Iowa operations.
