Our two-phase move is designed to minimize downtime so work can continue throughout.
Our new 70,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and headquarters building in suburban Kansas City is almost ready for move in, and we couldn’t be more excited! Since we first told you about our move last fall, construction has been continuing full steam ahead, allowing Phase 1 of our move to begin on Monday, April 3.
We will be moving approximately half of our equipment to our new facility at Three Trails Industrial Park (on 87th Street between Interstates 49 and 435) the first week in April while operations remain in progress at our current East 18th Street location. Once the equipment is up and running, we’ll begin Phase 2 of our move Monday, May 1, to bring the remainder of our equipment and staff to our new home, which we expect to have 100% fully operational by mid-May.
At 70,000 square feet, our new facility will more than double the size of our current building. That gives us the space we need to maximize the efficiency of our production areas, plus lots of room for future growth, which our existing building could not accommodate.
While we’re looking forward to being in our new home, and to starting this new chapter of our company’s history, we’d like to once again say that we owe all of our success entirely to our customers. We look forward to showing you photos of our new home in the next issue of our Critical Thinking newsletter (subscribe now)!
