Minnesota company to begin operations in Kansas

PLEASANTON, Kan. (AP) — A Minnesota-based company that makes precast concrete wall panels for buildings plans to begin operations in eastern Kansas.

FABCON Precast officials announced Monday that it would open its fourth plant in the country in Pleasanton, Kansas, by July. It expects to hire 35 to 40 people, including engineers, drafters, plant managers and skilled manufacturing laborers.

The Kansas City Star reports the company will take over a plant previously occupied by IPC Inc., a subsidiary of Cretex Companies Inc.

FABCON said the expansion will be its first in 14 years.
