Smart Warehousing is on the move — packing up its Edgerton headquarters and relocating to an Overland Park innovation hub.
The warehousing and fulfillment solutions company is expected to occupy a portion of the newly-completed Edison District, the company announced this week.
“Relocating our headquarters to downtown Overland Park and maintaining our Edgerton operations positions us well to best serve all our employees in and around Kansas City and to attract top talent,” said Carl Wasinger, founder and COO.
The move is set for completion by August and coincides with additional plans for growth as part of a 10-times revenue growth strategy — slated for fulfillment by 2025.
As part of such a plan, the company intends to increase the capacity of its marketing, sales, and revenue operations departments, said Toby Rush, CEO, and Kansas City startup veteran, mentor, and investor.
“Moving into downtown Overland Park gives us the opportunity to delight our employees more than ever and set them up for personal and professional success,” he said.
“We are seeking individuals who are authentic team players, caring promise-keepers, and tenacious finishers — people who have the drive to win and embody our work-hard, play-hard mentality.”
The mixed-use Edison District — led by developer and startup veteran, Tim Barton — boasts 100,000-square-feet of office space, high-end retail, and dining. Barton said he’s eager to welcome Smart Warehousing into the district’s emerging innovation community.
“Edison District has always aimed to bring new energy, working professionals, and entertainment amenities to Downtown [Overland Park] while being heavily invested in the existing community,” he said.
“Smart Warehousing is a perfect example of the type of company that will bring growth and energy to an increasingly vibrant area.”
