Local

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – A railroad tie company is bringing 132 new full-time jobs to southeast Kansas, the governor’s office announced in a statement.

Sicut Enterprises, a London-based company, has selected Neodesha as the site. The company is the European market leader for the manufacture and supply of recycled plastic composite railroad ties.

The company recently completed tests with U.S. Class 1 Railroads and is expanding into North America for the first time.

“Sicut’s new manufacturing hub will create over 130 good-paying manufacturing jobs and generate significant investment for Neodesha and the entire Southeast region,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “Our ability to recruit companies like Sicut to put down roots, proves that with our central location and world-class workforce, Kansas can compete for jobs and businesses around the globe.”

“We have found working with the state and local Neodesha officials during our due diligence process to be an extremely positive experience,” said William Mainwaring, Sicut Enterprises CEO

The company evaluated sites in multiple states before selecting Kansas, purchasing an existing building in Neodesha.
