Business & Industry

Sedgwick's existing economic prosperity has attracted new businesses to the city and seen many older firms expand their facilities and operations. Far-sighted community leaders purchased and developed the Sedgwick Industrial Park I and II, attracting new industries and employers to the community.

Sedgwick Industrial Park I & II, located just south on Ridge Road, is home to some of Sedgwick's largest employers. Unruh Fabricators, Unruh Fire, WB Services (Woodco Industries), Green Energy Products, and TRS Trucking. The industrial park is easily accessible, only 19 miles north of Wichita Mid-Continent Airport, 5 miles west of Interstate 135, or 8 miles south of Highway 50. Railway access is also possible.

The Sedgwick Industrial Park II is now available for future growth. The city staff is actively working to create opportunities for more industries that want to call Sedgwick home. Companies relocating or expanding within the 26-acre park may be eligible for tax incentives. Call city hall at (316)772-5151 for information.

City of Sedgwick welcomes
Wilbur-Ellis Company to
Sedgwick Industrial Park II


December 16, 2013 - Wilbur-Ellis Company announced today that it has reached an agreement-in-principle to purchase Accu-Rate Services, Inc., a full service agriculture retail facility located in Sedgwick, Kansas. The location, which opened in 1980, services growers in south central Kansas.

"Accu-Rate Services and its staff have a great reputation and passion for servicing their growers; these are qualities that we look for when acquiring businesses," said Roger Fitzke, business development manager for Wilbur-Ellis. "We're please to move forward with the process of acquiring the company from Curt Grattan and expanding in this area of Kansas."

"I believe that Wilbur-Ellis, a family-owned company, is best qualified to take over the business in order for us to continue to provide the best possible expertise and services to our growers," said Curt Grattan. "After 34 years in this business, I too look forward to working alongside Wilbur-Ellis to move this process along."

To expand its service offering, Wilbur-Ellis plans on purchasing roughly six acres of land in the new industrial park near Accu-Rate Services' existing site.

Fitzke and Grattan were in attendance at the city meeting, 7:30 p.m. December 16, 2013 for approval of the land purchase.

Wilbur-Ellis' Agribusiness Division, a rocognized leader in crop production technology and the distribution and marketing of plant protection, seed and nutritional products, generates more than $2 billion in sales revenue.

The closing of the transaction is subject to definitive documentation, satisfactory completion of diligence review, and other customary closing conditions.
