Menard Proposes 100-Job Facility in Lawrence

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The home improvement retailer Menard Incorporated is proposing a $25 million distribution center and manufacturing facility in Lawrence. The Kansas City Star reports that the facility would bring about 100 jobs to the community. Economic Development Corporation of Lawrence and Douglas County said in a statement that Midwest Manufacturing would operate the facility. Midwest Manufacturing is a division of Wisconsin-based Menard and supports the retail stores by handling such things as door manufacturing, steel siding and roofing. The development organization says the company must still complete property and engineering examinations of its 90-acre site. The project also is contingent on receiving necessary permits and approvals. The organization says the projects will receive a local assistance package, but details weren't disclosed. The package requires final approval.
