KUHN Krause, Inc., announces the construction of expanded manufacturing facilities at its manufacturing location in Hutchinson, Kan.
Construction ground-breaking for a high-bay, 70,000-square-foot building expansion began April 2012. The project is scheduled for completion by calendar year-end.
The expansion will improve manufacturing capacity, efficiency and quality with new, state-of-the-art technology and use of lean manufacturing strategies. This expansion complements other investments made in 2011 at Kuhn Krause, Inc. It constitutes yet another major commitment by the KUHN Group to manufacture and distribute high-quality agricultural equipment products in North America. The total cost of this construction project, along with related new machinery procurement scheduled for this year will be about $5.0 million.
