Universal Forest Products expands to Salina

Universal Forest Products announced today that it would expand to Salina, leasing 15,000 square feet of space at the city’s airport.

"We are pleased to have Universal Forest Products as a new business," said Dr. Randy Hassler, airport authority acting chairman. "They are a national leader in wood products for retail and industrial use and we are proud to add them to our national and international tenants at the Salina Airport Industrial Center."

The space was once occupied by Hawker Beechcraft Corp. The company, headquartered in Grand Rapids, Mich., manufactures and markets wood and wood alternative products for DIY and retail home centers and other retailers, structural lumber products for the manufactured housing industry, engineered wood components for various industries and forming products for concrete construction.

"I'm excited that Universal Forest Products has decided to expand in Salina," said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. "The state is working hard to make itself a great place for manufacturing, and having Universal Forest Products strengthen its presence here is certainly good news."

This announcement comes the same day that Hawker Beechcraft hands over the keys and completely vacates almost 500,000 square feet of space at the Salina Airport Industrial Center and Salina Aviation Service Center.

"Building 620 renovations are already underway," said Tim Rogers, A.A.E., airport authority executive director. "Universal Forest Products will be able to begin Salina operations this spring."

Universal Forest Products plans to hire seven people initially, ramping up to 17 over the next five years.
