BERWYN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 25, 2016--
Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE:TGI) announced today that it is
relocating its Kansas City-area operations later this year from
Grandview, Mo., to a new purpose-built facility in Edgerton, Kan., to
accommodate the company’s growth.
Triumph plans to occupy the new 156,000-sq.-ft. facility, located in the
Logistics Park Kansas City (LPKC), under a long-term lease agreement
with NorthPoint Development. The relocation to this new facility, being
built by Clayco Construction, is expected to begin in September, after
Triumph receives its certificate of occupancy, and be complete by late
The Edgerton site was selected based on a number of factors, according
to Rick Rosenjack, executive vice president of Triumph’s Precision
Components business unit. “The LPKC development was chosen due to strong
support from the state of Kansas and the local community in Edgerton,
close proximity to an established training facility, exceptional
logistics, and readily available space for future expansion,” said
Rosenjack. “The short distance from Grandview, Mo., to Edgerton, Kan.,
also allows us to keep most of our experienced employee base intact,
which is critical to continuity of production for our valued customers.”
“We value the strong relationship between the Triumph Group and our
state and appreciate its continued investment and commitment to growing
in Kansas,” said Governor Sam Brownback. “These types of partnerships
are key to our success, and we look forward to the launch of this
venture and others like it in the future.”
“Limited manufacturing companies like Triumph bring high quality jobs to
our community exemplifying the flexibility of LPKC to attract industries
beyond warehousing, distribution and internet fulfillment,” said
Edgerton Mayor Donald Roberts. “Edgerton’s streamlined development
process coupled with NorthPoint Development’s aggressive speculative
building program ensures we can quickly meet clients’ critical needs and
deliver speed-to-market that cannot be matched in the Kansas City area.”
