Triumph celebrates new Kansas plant

Triumph Group on Monday cut the ribbon on its 156,000-square-foot manufacturing building in Edgerton, in the Kansas City area.

The afternoon ribbon cutting of the new facility in the Logistics Park Kansas City was attended by Gov. Sam Brownback and Edgerton Mayor Donald Roberts.

The facility will house by June 2017 all of the Triumph operations in Grandview, Mo., including its 180 employees.

“Triumph is pleased to locate an advanced manufacturing operation in Kansas,” said Rick Rosenjack, executive vice president of Triumph Precision Components. “We selected the LPKC development 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.”

The Pennsylvania-based aircraft supplier also has operations in Wichita and Wellington, with a total of 290 employees.
