Sizewise Adds 81,000 S.F. to Hays, Kansas Facility

Sizewise - a Kansas City, Missouri-based company that produces wheelchairs and other medical equipment for obese patients - is expanding its manufacturing operations in Hays, Kansas. The company could add up to 40 jobs as part of the growth, the Hays Daily News reports.

The company has purchased three buildings near the Hays Regional Airport. Sizewise will begin production in early 2011.

"Keeping our production at the highest quality possible is critical given the products we manufacture and the customers we serve," said Brian Frickey, a company owner. "We believe strongly that maintaining local control over quality and speed of production is in the best interest of the patients and caregivers we serve."

The purchase adds 81,000 square feet of manufacturing space to Sizewise's operations.
