WHERE IT STARTED, HOW IT'S GOING
In November of 1968, Great Plains Industries' first location was a small office located on West Central in Wichita, KS. The 700 sq. ft. building accommodated GPI founder Charlie Peer and his co-founders, Ken Rix and Lyle Koontz. From these humble beginnings, GPI has grown to operate in a 178,000 sq. ft. facility in Northeast Wichita with 240 employees!
