A mechanical construction company, U.S. Engineering, invested $2.8 million to expand its Kansas City, Missouri, manufacturing facility, as part of a project that is expected to create 85 jobs.
U.S. Engineering Company expanded its fabrication capabilities with a 75,000 square foot facility in Kansas City. Its new fabrication facility includes 25,000 square feet of sheet metal manufacturing space and 50,000 square feet of modular fabrication and warehouse space.
Expansion of the 120-year-old firm is core to U.S. Engineering’s ability to provide modular prefabrication, as well as sheet metal manufacturing and installation for commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities throughout the Midwest region, the Missouri Dept. Of Economic Development said. Corporate and Midwest Region offices, as well as warehouse, piping and plumbing fabrication facilities, are located on Roanoke Road in Kansas City while the new manufacturing facility is located on Front Street.
“With 120 years of business experience in Kansas City, we are excited to expand our presence and enhance the value we provide to our customers throughout the region,” said Tyler Nottberg, Chairman & CEO of U.S. Engineering. “Our decision to reinvest in Kansas City represents a commitment to this community and reflects the confidence that we have in our team members to continue building an innovative, best-in-class organization.”
“Today’s announcement is further proof that Missouri’s economy continues to grow and thrive,” said Mike Downing, Acting Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “U.S. Engineering’s investment in our state validates our business friendly climate and top-notch workforce. I look forward to growing our partnership with U.S. Engineering as we work together to stimulate business and create more jobs.”
To assist U.S. Engineering with its expansion, the Department of Economic Development authorized a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria.
