Unite Private Networks connecting more jobs in Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Network provider Unite Private Networks (UPN) is expanding its headquarters in Kansas City. The company will open a larger facility in the city’s Zona Rosa mixed-use and tech area and create up to 30 jobs by 2020.
UPN offers its services to schools, governments, carriers, data centers, hospitals and enterprise business customers, and has seen tremendous growth in the past two years. Earlier this year, the company signed a deal to implement a next generation network for a major school district in the Kansas City metro. Opening its doors in 1998, the company has a long-standing history in the Kansas City region.
“We are proud to continue to call the KC metro our home,” said Kevin Anderson, chairman & CEO of UPN. “We’ve created nearly 100 new jobs over the last couple of years, with the majority being right here in Kansas City, and we plan to continue that growth into the future.”
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in coming months at the company’s new 15,000-square-foot office in Zona Rosa. UPN’s expanded headquarters will allow it to better serve its customers. For information on employment with the company, go here.
To assist Unite Private Networks with its expansion, the Missouri Department of Economic Development offered a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation criteria.
