USDA Officials Recognize Partnerships with Brewer Science

Jul 4, 2001

Brewer Science, Inc. and Terla, Inc., both businesses owned by Terry and Paula Brewer of Rolla, recently completed expansions. Financing for the growth was obtained with the help of UMB Bank of Kansas City and a guaranteed business and industry loan with the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development.

On June 27, 2001, USDA representatives were on hand at Brewer Science in Rolla along with a UMB Bank representative to commemorate the shared success.
 Gregory C. Branum, Missouri State Director for USDA Rural Development said, "This is truly a success story when the private sector and the federal government can partner to help a local business provide jobs for deserving individuals in the rural area. Creating jobs like this provides opportunities for our children to stay in the area and work. Everyone benefits with this type of cooperation.

"Charles Wolf, Senior Vice President of UMB Bank of Kansas City, described the partnership as "very successful."
