Westmor Industries, located in Shawnee, Kansas, had a problem. Business was good. So good they needed to expand, and expand fast to meet rising demand.
Westmor manufactures petroleum, propane and liquid-gas handling parts and equipment and they needed three new assembly bays, a fabrication shop, a new lunchroom and locker rooms for the increased capacity of operations. They had to look no further than across the highway for local general contractor Straub Construction.
We met with Westmor to help establish a budget and space plan that would meet their growing production needs. We called on GBA Architects Engineers, located a couple miles away in Lenexa, to provide the architectural, civil and structural design required for the 17,500 square foot, pre-engineered metal building.
The Shawnee EDC and many local consultants, subcontractors and suppliers are all working hard to make this expansion possible.
The Kansas City metro is fortunate to have so many talented design professionals. It’s been a pleasure working with Westmor to take care of their space needs. What’s really great is that we’re working with our neighbors and it’s just good to see a young, growing and vibrant business providing great jobs in our community.
Neighbors helping neighbors, local businesses building up one another and investing in the local economy, now that’s a good news story.
