Horizon Global, a manufacturer of branded towing and trailering equipment, is nearing completion on a 512,000-square-foot distribution facility in Logistics Park Kansas City in Edgerton, Kansas. The new facility is expected to create more than 120 new jobs.
The Edgerton facility will consolidate the Horizon Global Americas distribution into a more centrally located and larger facility, while also upgrading distribution operations through automation and technology. The Edgerton location is part of the company’s larger distribution strategy, and will be supported by strategically placed regional distribution facilities throughout the United States.
Horizon Global’s new Edgerton facility will be located in Inland Port XXXII, developed by NorthPoint Development. NorthPoint Development serves as the master developer for LPKC, a 1,700-acre master-planned distribution and warehouse development anchored by BNSF Railway’s newest intermodal facility. Since opening in 2013, LPKC is now home to more than 11 million square feet of warehouse and distribution space.
