GREAT PLAINS INDUSTRIAL PARK - Unlike anyplace else!


Situated in Labette County, just outside of the city limits of Parsons in Southeast Kansas, Great Plains offers globally competitive opportunities for your business. Its central location in the U.S. and on-site assets at the park allow for ease of access to all major markets by road, rail and barge.

The acreage that comprises the industrial park was originally amassed to form the Kansas Army Ammunition Plant (KSAAP) during WWII. Today, the park encompasses 13,951 total acres. Of this total acreage, approximately 6,800 acres are owned by Great Plains Development Authority and are ripe for redevelopment. With the availability to break the property into various tract sizes, Great Plains can accomodate the needs of your business.

The industrial park is complete with existing infrastructure including:
  • 106 miles of roadways
  • 30 miles of rail directly connected to the Union Pacific (including an in-place switch off of the main line)
  • Water and wastewater plants owned and operated by Great Plains
  • Kansas' lowest electric rates through Westar Energy
  • On-site AT&T fiber optics
For businesses looking to thrive in today's competitive market, Great Plains offers an ideal location to plant your business - with plenty of room to grow.
