Excerpts via Bloomberg: Wind energy company moving headquarters to KC
By BILL DRAPER The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo.
A California-based wind turbine manufacturer is moving its headquarters and production operations to a site at Kansas City International Airport, where the company plans to create more than 200 new jobs over the next six years.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon hailed Nordic Windpower USA as the type of technology company his administration has been working to bring to the state. His administration approved $5.6 million in incentives for the company to make the move.
Nordic Windpower makes two-bladed wind turbines for the rapidly growing wind-energy market. Its current headquarters in Berkeley, Calif., and an assembly facility in Pocatello, Idaho, will be moving to Kansas City.
Nixon said Nordic plans to invest nearly $16 million in facilities at the airport and will be the first wind turbine production plant in the state.
