ALTON – Contegra Construction Co. has completed the build-out of 42,000 square feet of specialty packaging space for Advanced Outsource Solutions at Alton Center Business Park.
AOS employs disadvantaged persons, individuals with disabilities and disabled veterans who provide contract packaging and fulfillment services to help customers manage merchandising supply chains.
