O'Fallon to get new corporate headquarters

Air Evac Lifeteam, a provider of air medical transportation to rural communities, has announced its plans to open a new corporate headquarters in O’Fallon,  in St. Charles County.

The move from West Plains, Mo. is part of major expansion for the company and is expected to create as many as 190 jobs.   

The City of O’Fallon was chosen from a list of 20 other locations throughout Missouri and other states.

“O’Fallon was a good choice for Air Evac Lifeteam because it is centrally located to our service area and proved to be a community that reflects the culture of our company,” said Air Evac Lifeteam President Seth Myers. “It provides access to a major airport hub for quick dissemination of parts and supplies to our bases and to the additional people and resources we need to maintain and build upon our continued growth.”

Expected to be operational by November 2012, the company’s headquarters will be a 78,000‐square-foot office building at Boardwalk Springs Place and will house both corporate and air medical operations, as well as provide for future growth.
