The owner of a Kansas City-based general construction company has been named Missouri’s Small Business Person of the Year, the U.S. Small Business Administration said Monday.

Nilson Goes, who started Infinite Energy Construction Inc. in 1996, will join winners from 49 others states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam in Washington, D.C., on May 15-16, when one will be selected as the national Small Business Person of the Year.  The event is part of the celebration of National Small Business Week.

Infinite Energy, which offers general contracting, electrical contracting and contract management services, started as a home-based business with two employees. Funding came from lines of credit secured by Goes’ personal property and assets, the SBA said.

The company has grown and now has more than 40 employees in four offices around the country, the SBA said. In addition to its headquarters at 13625 Oak St., the firm has offices in Knob Noster, Mo.; Fort Worth, Texas; and Fort Irwin, Calif.

The SBA also recognized Infinite Energy for its involvement with charitable organizations such as Heartland Hoops Youth Development, Harvesters of Kansas City and Habitat for Humanity.
