Shamrock Trading Eyes Expansion in Overland Park, Kansas

08/06/2018
Shamrock Trading Corporation is planning a major expansion in Overland Park, Kansas. The project, which is subject to review and approval from the city, is expected to create over 1,000 new jobs.

The firm and its affiliated companies provide services for the transportation industry, including logistics, financing, diesel fuel and shop programs, software technology and international trade finance.

According to the Kansas Department of Commerce, Shamrock Trading recently announced the purchase of 30 acres of property at the northeast corner of 95th and Metcalf in Overland Park. Though no plans have been finalized, the land could be used to build multiple office towers for the company’s growing base of employees, which has skyrocketed by 175% over the past three years.

“This location could be ideal for the expansion of our current campus,” said Tom Sullivan, COO and spokesperson for Shamrock. “Shamrock has its roots here in this community. For three straight years, we’ve been named one of the Best Places to Work in Kansas City because we genuinely care about our people. If they’re happy, we’re happy.”

“This is incredible news for both Overland Park and the entire state of Kansas,” said Governor Jeff Colyer. “These are high-quality jobs with an average salary of $56,000, and will provide great-paying career opportunities for over 1000 Kansans.

“Our state is thrilled to have great partners like Shamrock who are committed to creating high-quality jobs right here in Kansas and we hope to continue this incredible relationship for decades to come,” he said.

State officials noted Kansas’ great business climate and talented workforce played a key role in landing this project. “The Department of Commerce stands ready to assist companies in their growth objectives, and we congratulate Shamrock on its continued success serving the business community and exploring new markets,” said Robert North, interim Commerce Secretary.
