Zeolyst International has received approval for a tax abatement from the Kansas City, Kansas, Unified Government commissioners for an $83 million expansion of its factory there. The project will create 34 jobs, according to the Kansas City Kansan.
The abatement is for 10 years. The factory has been located in Kansas City for several decades.
"Our work force is highly skilled there," said company General Manager John Lau. "They have a fabulous safety record. They have not had a spill there in over a decade. Safety records are very important to our business."
Zeolyst produces zeolite catalysts and absorbents, including custom powders and hydrocracking catalysts.
