"The opening of MPI’s new facility continues the momentum we have seen in the industrial sector in Wyandotte County and the overall positive business climate found in Kansas." -- Greg Kindle, President, Wyandotte Economic Development Council

Metal Panels Inc., will be filling boxes and loading trucks, but this delivery is not for a customer. MPI will be moving inventory and personnel from their leased distribution center to their newly constructed manufacturing facility near Interstate 435 and State 32 by the end of April. MPI, a manufacturer of metal panels and accessories for the metal roofing and metal building industry, is opening their second 35,000 sq. ft. manufacturing center in Kansas City, Kansas to better serve and expand their seven-state customer base. MPI anticipates bringing 23 new jobs to Kansas City over the next five years. A grand opening celebration of the manufacturing plant is scheduled for May 17th, 2013, from 11am to 2pm.
Contractors and builders in Kansas, Missouri and lower Iowa and Nebraska will now have a closer supplier for panels and accessories, which translates into more competitive product pricing, locally-stocked inventory, and shorter turnaround time on custom orders. Opening the Kansas City-based manufacturing center will include hiring locally, bringing more revenue and jobs to the area. According to Greg Kindle, President Wyandotte Economic Development Council, “The opening of MPI’s new facility continues the momentum we have seen in the industrial sector in Wyandotte County and the overall positive business climate found in Kansas. We are excited about the jobs being created and look forward to working with MPI into the future as they grow their business.”

MPI not only produces a full line of UL-approved StrongSeam panels, but is a licensed Berridge customer and manufacturer. MPI offers 13 panel profiles, curved panels, and a wide line of accessories for everything needed for a metal building from the slab up. Custom trim, up to 21 ft. can be ordered with a short turnaround.
