Veterinary pharmaceutical company Ceva Animal Health is expanding its leased space in SubTropolis, bringing its total underground warehouse and distribution footprint to 90,000 square feet.
Growth in Ceva’s portfolio of animal health products is driving the company’s expansion and consolidation of warehouse operations, according to Craig Wallace, CEO and North America/Pacific Zone Director at Ceva Animal Health.
Ceva initially leased 72,000 square feet in SubTropolis for warehouse and distribution space in 2015 as it sought to be in closer proximity to its North American headquarters in Lenexa, Kansas. The company employs approximately 450 people in the Kansas City region.
With more than six million square feet of contiguous underground space available and the potential to develop an additional eight million square feet, Hunt Midwest President and CEO Ora Reynolds said SubTropolis offers utmost flexibility to accommodate growing companies like Ceva Animal Health.
Ceva is the fourth company to lease space in the newest phase of SubTropolis north of Derrough Drive, joining the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Jayhawk File Express and LightEdge Solutions, the anchor tenant of SubTropolis Technology Center (STC).
