Straub International to close Larned location

GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — Straub International says it will close its Larned location and consolidate the work into its remaining locations.

Straub, an agriculture equipment dealer, also has outlets in Great Bend, Salina, Hutchinson, Pratt, Wichita and Marion.

CEO Larry Straub says closing the Larned location will make the firm more efficient, noting the Great Bend store is only 20 miles away and many services overlap. Many of the 20 employees from the Larned store will have the chance to stay with the company.

The Hutchinson News reports Straub said slowing business conditions prompted the decision.
