Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. Participates in Panel Discussion on Foreign Investment in Kansas

Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. - Governor Jeff Colyer yesterday spoke at the Invest in America Annual Summit.  He spoke about ways the state can attract foreign direct investment, increase workforce skill and partner with the private sector to grow the state’s economy.
Governor Colyer gave examples of several companies who have invested millions of dollars and provided thousands of jobs to the state such as the $87 million investment and over 100 jobs from Kubota Tractor Corporation of Japan. He also used the example of Viega, a family-owned German manufacturer that completed its third manufacturing facility in McPherson, Kansas, over the past 10 years.  At full build-out, the company will have nearly 600,000 square feet for plastics and metal manufacturing at the site with 425 employees.
“With over 57,000 Kansas workers employed as a result of global investment, continuing to attract global employers to our state will be a key part of our growth,” said Governor Colyer, “As Governor I will work hard to attract new investment and job opportunities to Kansas.”
