Jul. 31, 2018
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Shamrock Trading Corp. has announced a proposed expansion at its Overland Park facility that it says will create more than 1,000 jobs.
Gov. Jeff Colyer's office says in a news release that these are high-quality jobs with an average salary of $56,000.
The company recently announced the purchase of 30 acres in Overland Park. Though no plans have been finalized, it says the land could be used to build multiple office towers for a growing base of employees that has grown by 175 percent in the past three years.
The company's chief operating officer, Tom Sullivan, says the location is ideal for the expansion.
Shamrock Trading provides services for the transportation industry, including logistics, financing, and software technology.
The proposal is subject to approval from the city of Overland Park.
