It’s been a banner year for manufacturers investing back into their businesses and expanding to meet rising demand. Yet another manufacturing expansion—along with more manufacturing jobs—is coming, this time in Kansas.
Plastics manufacturer Viega LLC is investing in a new 204,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in McPherson, Kansas, that is expected to create 100 new jobs by 2019:
Viega LLC is building a 204,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in McPherson, where it also will create a master distribution hub as part of a strategic plan to prepare for growth in the pipe fitting market.
The one-story facility will be constructed using Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design principles on a 127-acre campus that houses two other Viega buildings.
The project is expected to bring about 100 new jobs to the area about 58 miles north of Wichita when it is completed in mid-2019. Viega’s presence in McPherson will then exceed 700,000 square feet.
Viega currently has more than 600 employees in North America with facilities in Kansas, Colorado, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.
