Governor Laura Kelly celebrated the creation of 8,800 high-paying, quality jobs in Johnson County. During visits to Overland Park and New Century, she highlighted the strides Kansas has made in attracting businesses to the state. Governor Kelly visited New Century Commerce Center, one of the largest multi-tenant business parks in the Kansas City Metro Region, to break ground on a 9-million square-foot expansion. This project will bring an estimated 4,700 permanent jobs and 3,500 construction jobs over the next 16 years. Her second stop celebrated the grand opening of the Spectrum Retention Center in Overland Park. Through Spectrum’s nearly $19 million investment, more than 600 quality jobs will be created. The new customer retention center will serve 31 million people across 41 states.
