Tuthill Corporation Opening Manufacturing Facility in KC

by Lexi Ryan | Jun 23, 2020

Congratulations to our partners in Lenexa, Kan., on the announcement that Tuthill Corporation, a global manufacturer of industrial pumps, opened a new 53,352-sq.-ft., manufacturing facility, creating 68 jobs.

The facility at 14850 W. 101st Terrace brings both professional and manufacturing jobs to the Lenexa community. The location will support Tuthill’s business and commercial model to better serve customers as the demand through sales channels and e-marketplaces continues to grow. 

“This is just the beginning of our global commercial strategy that strongly positions our products and services within our key foundational markets,” said Steven Westfall, chief executive officer of Tuthill Corporation, in the company’s announcement

The Lenexa site will serve shipments in support of shorter lead times and market share growth. Tuthill’s overall business continues to expand throughout North America, Latin America and Europe due to investment in product performance and delivery. 

"Tuthill has discovered what so many other manufacturing and distribution companies know about the KC market - our geographic location, workforce and capacity for growth offers shorter lead times and market share growth,” said Chris Gutierrez, president, KC SmartPort. “We congratulate our partners in Lenexa and the State of Kansas on this investment and look forward to seeing Tuthill's growth in KC.” 

More than 40 million sq. ft. of industrial development has been built in the KC region since 2012. This development, coupled with a manufacturing workforce of more than 150,000 and the capacity to reach 85 percent of the U.S. in two days or less, positions the Kansas City region well for manufacturing and distribution success. 

The Kansas City Area Development Council was proud to partner with the following organizations in attracting Tuthill Corporation to the KC region:

State of Kansas / Kansas Department of Commerce
City of Lenexa / Lenexa Economic Development Council
Evergy
CBRE Group
Karbank Real Estate Company
Express Employment Professionals
QPS Employment Group
