WICHITA – Great Plains Oil, which has been in the market for about a year, is moving from a warehouse between Wichita and Newton to a 4,500-square-foot one at 601 W. Pawnee.
The building’s dock-high warehouse is the attraction.
“It works out a little bit better,” co-owner Chad Grier says of loading. “Makes life a lot easier.”
His and Kevin Shaw’s company, which is based here, delivers motor oil, transmission fluid and antifreeze to places such as Tulsa, Joplin, and northern Arkansas along with destinations throughout Kansas. Eventually, there are plans to expand to Kansas City and Omaha.
“If we keep growing like we are … a year from now we’ll probably need double the space,” Grier says. “It just depends on the growth.”
Ted Branson of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.
