A Salina company that manufactures valves will expand its headquarters in Kansas.
The Salina Chamber of Commerce says Salina Vortex plans to add 64,000 square feet to its plant. Most of that, 48,000, will be production space; the rest will house office space. When the expansion is complete, Vortex will have nearly 185,000 square feet in Salina.
Vortex moved into the facility in 2006 with 123 employees. Since then the company has grown to 164 employees. The Salina Chamber says the expansion will allow Vortex to accomodate more growth and new products.
