WICHITA, US: Koch Industries has moved forward with expansion of its Wichita campus, Kansas, US. The project will include construction of a new 210,000 square foot office building to be situated on the northwest side of the campus. The new building will have three stories plus a lower level and the capacity to accommodate 745 employees. More than 2,800 people are employed by Koch companies in Wichita and that number will be significantly increasing.

The possible expansion of Koch’s campus was announced in May of this year when the company said it was outgrowing its 1,025,000-square-foot Wichita headquarters. In the past year, Koch has undertaken two projects to design and build out existing, underutilized space on its campus. With more growth on the horizon, the decision was made to move forward with the Wichita campus expansion.

“We have more than a dozen Koch companies with a presence here in Wichita. Our growth has come about as a result of exciting innovations of all kinds. Our goal is to continue this rate of innovation as well as the pursuit of other opportunities and acquisitions. The result of all this is that Koch will create new jobs in Wichita,” said Dave Robertson, President and COO, Koch Industries.
