  • Kimray moving forward with new headquarters

    Kimray announced in early 2014 they planned to move their operations and headquarters to 136 acres at Britton Road and Eastern Avenue.

    Those plans were later put on hold and the company performed wide-sweeping layoffs that resulted in a ten percent reduction in their then 700-employee workforce.

    Now, the manufacturer of oil and gas equipment is once again moving forward with plans for an elaborate new campus to include professional offices, a sales office and a manufacturing plant.

    The company purchased the undeveloped land from Aubrey McClendon in June 2014 for $2.312 million.

    As previously announced in a press release, Kimray had recreated a plan to relocate from its current location at 52 Nw 42nd and consolidate their facilities which currently span 20 acres and multiple buildings between I-235 and Santa Fe Avenue.

    The new plans represent a significant departure from what had been originally proposed, with their primary building being moved further to the north and west rather than built near the intersection.

    The change also includes the addition of ponds, fountains and extensive landscaping with the ability to expand their main sturcture and add other buildings on the campus.

    Tom Hill, Kimray's Chairman and CEO, had said in a previous press release, “Very few companies have the opportunity to design their ideal space for the future and also impact a new area of the community in a positive way. We are excited for this change and what it will mean for our employees, customers and community.”

    The project architect is REES.
