NorthPoint Development Bringing More Jobs to KCK

NorthPoint Development, which bought 80 acres of former General Motors property from RACER Trust in 2013, has begun construction of an 842,000-square-foot industrial building on the property, which when complete is expected to employ about 500.

The building is the second in Central Industrial Park, the name NorthPoint gave to a major development initiative that could result in 2,000 new jobs for the regional economy.

The first building is occupied by Inergy Automotive Sytems, which manufactures plastic fuel tank systems for the nearby GM Fairfax Assembly Plant. Inergy is expected to employ 200.

“The project represents a significant investment in the Fairfax District, which has seen a boom in industrial and manufacturing development and job creation in recent years," NorthPoint President and COO Chad Meyer told the Kansas City Business Journal.

RACER Trust congratulates NorthPoint Development and the people of the Kansas City area on this important project.
