Furniture Manufacturer Flexsteel Industries Inc. purchased a 500,000 square-foot distribution facility with plans to create 141 jobs at the facility at Logistics Park Kansas City in Edgerton, Kansas.
The company purchased the Class A industrial facility, which was developed on a speculative basis by NorthPoint Development, to enhance its customer experience and increase shareholder value. The growing residential and commercial furniture manufacturer will utilize the new facility to distribute its furniture products to customers across the United States.
LPKC is a 1,500-acre master-planned distribution and warehouse development that is anchored by BNSF Railway’s newest intermodal facility. Developed by NorthPoint, LPKC has a central location that allows businesses to efficiently ship goods to any location in the country.
“Flexsteel is the fourth major distribution facility to locate at LPKC,” said Patrick Robinson, Vice President, NorthPoint Development. “By co-locating near one of the nation’s premier intermodal sites, Flexsteel will enjoy significant transportation savings and be able to more efficiently deliver its furniture products.”
“Kansas offers numerous advantages in the distribution sector, including a location in the heart of the country, outstanding infrastructure and state of the art facilities such as LPKC,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “It’s great that those advantages can help Flexsteel grow and create jobs in our state.”
