Hantover, Inc., and its wholly-owned subsidiary ARY, Inc., a distributor to the food processing and general manufacturing industries, will invest $3.3 million to move from Kansas City, Missouri into a new Overland Park, Kansas production complex, retaining 81 jobs and adding 39 jobs over the next five years.
"We are pleased to become corporate citizens of Overland Park considering the quality of life available for our staff and economic opportunity for our company," stated Bernard Huff, President of Hantover.
The company, which designs, manufactures and sells commercial-quality personal protective clothing and packaging equipment, has started moving into a 25,000-square-foot facility at 5200 W. 110th Street in Overland Park. Hantover has 10 distribution centers across North America.
"I want to welcome Hantover, Inc., and its subsidiary operation, ARY, Inc., to Overland Park," said Mayor Carl Gerlach of Overland Park. "From safety products to food preparation equipment, Hantover projects continued success and growth of its business over the next five years, including adding more employees. Part of Overland Park's quality of life is its appealing economy, and Hantover further strengthens our community's appeal."
"Hantover is an international distributor with more than 70 years of serving customers in the food industry," said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. "I'm glad that the company will become a part of the Overland Park business community and bring 130 high-paying jobs to the state." Economic Development officials said the incentive package provided the firm was not immediately available due to ongoing talks.
