Farmers Insurance announced that it has extended its lease for its national property claims division offices in Olathe. The extension, which lasts through 2024, will allow Farmers to retain 400 positions at its more than 100,000 square foot facility at 10551 South Ridgeview Road.
“We first came to Olathe and the Greater Kansas City area because of the quality of the local workforce and the healthy business environment,” said Rob Koch, head of Centralized Inside Property Claims for Farmers Insurance. “We have agreed to extend our commitment because we remain confident that this community is continuing the great partnership we have built together over the years.”
“Farmers Insurance employs many workers at several locations throughout Olathe,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “The jobs Farmers has created in Olathe are great for the Kansas economy, and I’m glad that the company has decided that our state is an ideal place to continue to grow and invest.”
