To accommodate existing and future business growth, CAV Ice Protection will open a North American Operations Center at New Century Airport (KIXD) in New Century, Kansas, near Kansas City. The move has been planned since the fall 2012 and will be effective April 2.

“We are very excited to announce our new North American Operations Center in the Kansas City area,” said Ken Weaver, CAV Ice Protection Vice President – Sales and Marketing. “CAV Ice Protection’s on-going growth and future business plans will result in new ice protection products and services, greater support and expanded capabilities at our facilities in the U.K., Poland, Mexico and the United States.”

CAV Ice Protection is planning to grow its new Operations Center in the Kansas City, Kansas, area by as many as twelve people, including engineering, technical, sales and administrative staff, Weaver added. Positions added will be in operations, sales, warehousing, distribution and product support.
