Metal Panels Inc. builds Kansas manufacturing facility, retains jobs

Metal Panels Inc., a Tulsa, Okla., based manufacturer of metal panels and trim for metal roofing, buildings and post frame construction has announced it will construct a 34,450 square foot manufacturing facility at Kaw Drive and Ruby Avenue in the West Hills Industrial Park in Kansas City, Kan. The new building is the first Metal Panels location outside of the Tulsa market and will replace the current temporary distribution hub at 910 South 10th Street in Kansas City, Kan.

Metal Panels will invest $2.9 million in the new KCK facility including machinery and equipment and expect to have 12 to 15 employees to the new building by the end of 2013. Construction of the facility is being handled by Rose Design Build and the facility is expected to be operating by the end of late spring 2013.

“I welcome the addition of Metal Panels to Kansas,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “The company has picked a great time to become a part of the state’s growing business environment. Metal Panels is a perfect example of the kind of manufacturing business that we want to bring to Kansas.”

Greg Kindle, President WYEDC added, “For Metal Panels Inc. to select Wyandotte County is great for our economy. Bringing valuable manufacturing jobs to our region is tremendous.”
