New Century, Kan. (February 16, 2023) — The Kansas Department of Commerce announced the New Century Commerce Center has been designated as a Kansas Certified Site. The Business Park is the ninth site in the state and the only site in the Kansas City metro area with the designation.
Because industry certifications are important to real estate consultants when making site selection decisions, the Johnson County Airport Commission, Evergy and Southwest Johnson County EDC, strategically partnered with the Kansas Department of Commerce to attain the Kansas Certified Site Designation. This new certification, along with the site’s existing AEROReady™ Aviation and BNSF Railway Certifications directly addresses factors critical to the success of attracting new industries to the New Century Commerce Center.
“We pledge to assist our efforts with the New Century Commerce Center site through various Department of Commerce communications channels. We look forward to future opportunities to work with you and to provide site marketing assistance whenever possible,” said Lieutenant Governor/Secretary of Commerce, David Toland.
“This is an ideal location for companies who need high-quality sites and buildings with national and international access to transportation via land, air and rail,” said Greg Martinette, Southwest Johnson County EDC President. “This Certification gives New Century a new tool to attract new industries to the site.”
“This certification raises the national footprint for the New Century Commerce Center,” said Aaron Otto, Executive Director, Johnson County Airport Commission. “The site meets the qualities needed to attract and sustain companies in the aerospace industry, including those that require airport support services and infrastructure.”
