Canada-based Modern Manufacturing, a producer of materials for railroad services, specializing in aluminum, steel, and other high-strength metals, plans to invest in a production facility at Intec Business Park in Eudora, Kansas. The project is expected to create 78 new jobs.
The company, which currently has operations in Canada, has purchased two parcels of land in the park with plans for expansion and future growth in Eudora, according to the Kansas Department of Commerce.
“Manufacturing plays a large role in supporting our state’s economy,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “Modern Manufacturing will feel right at home in Kansas, and I’m glad we could help support this new project, which will create solid jobs for the region and state.”
“Kansas is the best place in the world for manufacturers, and the industry grows stronger every day,” Secretary of Commerce David Toland said. “Modern Manufacturing has made the wise choice to take advantage of the incredible business infrastructure and manufacturing climate in our state, and we could not be more grateful. Congratulations to Modern Manufacturing, Eudora, and Kansas manufacturing on this exciting new partnership.”
