Advance Catastrophe Technologies Expand Operations in Wichita, Kansas
“I think there is something romantic about keeping it here,” said ACT president and CEO Christian Wiley told The Wichita Eagle newspaper. “The city has grown and it’s got a lot of dynamic things going on. We would love to continue to be a part of that and show the city’s growth to our employees and clients when they travel to Wichita to see us and our training facility.”
“Wiley said the company had a few locations picked out in Texas, but Dan Unruh at InSite Real Estate Group was able to secure ACT staying in Kansas. Wiley said the site’s proximity to the Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport for clients was also a draw.”
On June 2, the Wichita City Council is set to discuss an 8-10 year tax abatement based on job growth. Wiley said the abatement percentage isn’t set but based on the idea that the company will add at least one to two new jobs a year over five years.
