September 5, 2014

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) today announced that HNTB Corporation is renewing its century-long commitment to doing business in Missouri with an expansion of its downtown Kansas City headquarters and signing of a 15-year lease agreement. The company’s expansion project includes a significant capital investment totaling more than $4.3 million and is expected to create at least 40 new jobs. The firm currently employs more than 540 professionals in the region.

“HNTB’s dedication to the Kansas City community has had far-reaching effects on the region’s economic growth,” said Mike Downing, director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “From supporting hundreds of high-paying jobs to strengthening Missouri’s reputation as an infrastructure solutions industry leader, HNTB has made outstanding contributions to the state and we’re proud to partner with them on this latest expansion.”

Founded in 1914, HNTB is an employee-owned infrastructure solutions firm serving both public and private owners and construction contractors. The company delivers a full range of infrastructure-related services, including award-winning planning, design, program delivery and construction management to clients nationwide. Headquartered in Kansas City, HNTB has offices in 28 states, including two other Missouri locations, one additional office in downtown Kansas City and another in St. Louis.

“One hundred years ago, our founders realized that Kansas City was a great place to do business and the same still holds true today,” said Tom O’Grady, HNTB Central Division president. “Missouri is a low-cost state with an abundance of talent. We’re eager for the opportunities this expansion will bring and we’re looking forward to our next 100 years in the Show-Me State.” 

To assist HNTB with its expansion in Kansas City, the Missouri Department of Economic Development has offered a strategic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria.
