El Dorado, KS — BG Products, Inc., broke ground for what will be a 145,000-square-foot facility near its existing distribution center. The massive structure will house its warehousing and distribution operations while a portion of production operations transition to the existing distribution facility. In response to product demand in the marketplace, the added space will increase efficiency.  

“We are pleased to announce the expansion of what will be a state-of-the-art, higher capacity facility,” said Ron Garcia, BG’s COO and CFO. “We continue to look forward to a bright future at BG.” Construction will be complete by September 30, 2019.

Thursday’s groundbreaking follows the current construction of a new 34,000-square-foot BG Technology and Training Center at BG corporate headquarters in Wichita.

Edgerton, KS -- NorthPoint Development has announced the start of construction of Inland Ports XXXII, a 765,927 square-foot building and XXXIII, a 927,155 square-foot building, both constructed on a speculative basis at Logistics Park Kansas City (LPKC). LPKC is a 1,700-acre master-planned distribution and warehouse development anchored by BNSF Railway’s newest intermodal facility located in Edgerton, Kan., a suburb southwest of Kansas City.

Approximately two million square feet of speculative construction will be delivered this spring, and due to existing tenant demand and new tenant interest, NorthPoint has decided to start this new phase of construction. Upon completion of the two additional buildings, expected in summer 2016, there will be approximately 6.5 million square feet of new buildings at LPKC, supporting total future building capacity of 17 million square feet.
