WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Koch Industries has announced plans to expand its Wichita headquarters as it seeks to accommodate 745 anticipated new employees.
The project includes construction of a three-story, 210,000-square-foot office building slated to be completed in mid-2015. Construction is expected to begin next fall. The building will include a cafe and training space.
Koch employs more than 2,800 people in Wichita. The company has roughly 2,400 unfilled jobs nationwide, including more than 150 open jobs at its Wichita headquarters.
The company said in May it had outgrown its headquarters and was considering a possible expansion.
Dave Robertson, chief operating officer of Koch Industries, said more than a dozen Koch companies have a presence in Wichita.
