Agricultural equipment manufacturer KUHN Krause, Inc., announced the construction of expanded manufacturing facilities at its location in Hutchinson, Kansas, where the company currently employs more than 300 people.

Construction ground breaking for a high-bay, 70,000-square-foot building expansion is expected to begin sometime in April. The project is scheduled for completion by calendar year-end.

The total cost of this construction project, along with related new machinery procurement scheduled for this year, will be approximately $5 million.  FG
