The Kansas City Region

We're Making It "In KC"

The Kansas City region is actively enhancing our regional and global
manufacturing competitiveness.

The Kansas City region already is home to some of the world’s most advanced manufacturing operations:

  • State-of-the-art Harley-Davidson assembly operation
  • Two hybrid-vehicle assembly plants (Ford and General Motors)
  • General Motors Corp. will invest $600 million in its Kansas City, Kan. Fairfax Assembly Plant to build a 450,000-square-foot paint shop. Technology in the new facility will lead to a 50% reduction in energy use per vehicle and reduced volatile organic compound emissions.
  • Ford Motor Co. will invest $1.1 billion in its Kansas City assembly Plant in Claycomo, Mo. preparing it to produce the new Ford Transit van.
  • Emerging industries like medical devices and animal pharmaceuticals

Kansas City is centrally located and boasts a diverse industry base. The region is supported by a robust supply-chain network and excellent transportation and logistics services.
