Construction Underway For Sioux Chief’s New Headquarters
Over 600 employees to be moved to new location.
KANSAS CITY, MO, April 12, 2016 — Sioux Chief Manufacturing, a leading maker of rough plumbing fixtures, has begun initial work on its new headquarters in the northwest corner of the Centerpoint complex in south Kansas City, formerly the site of Richards Gebaur Air Force Base.
Sioux Chief owner, Joe P. Ismert, says current activity involves the ground being leveled to make room for the new facility (projected to one day be in excess of 1,000,000 square-feet). Crews should begin pouring the foundation within the next few weeks.
“We’re excited to see construction activity ramping up,” says Ismert. “If all goes as planned, our expectation is that our new headquarters will be completed and ready for us in early 2017.”
Almost all of the 600+ employees will be making the move to the new headquarters. Sioux Chief’s world-class extrusion operation will remain in the original Peculiar, Missouri facility.
One of the last items to make the move to the new headquarters will be the iconic sculpture of the Sioux Indian chief that has stood in front of the company’s entrance for many years. Moving the heavy sculpture by truck for the 21-mile journey will be an event all by itself.
“In my mind,” said Ismert, “we’ll know we’re settled in our new home when the Chief is standing guard out in front of the building.”
