Eudora The former home to a medical manufacturer in Eudora is about to get new life as a printing center.
Kingston Printing Inc., a Lawrence-based commercial printer, is buying M-Pact Worldwide's former manufacturing space at 1310 Kistler Dr. in the Intech Business Park along the north side of Kansas Highway 10.
Terms of the sale, scheduled to close Friday, have not been disclosed. But Kingston owner Dick Johnson said that he was paying less than the $1.4 million list price for the 5.2-acre site and its 40,000-square-foot building, which became available after BSN Medical Inc., a German company with U.S. operations based in North Carolina, bought M-Pact's assets in July with intentions to move the work to other BSN locations.
Once the sale closes, Johnson said, Kingston will start moving its printing presses, binding equipment, folders and other systems out of the company's three-building complex on Delaware Street in southeast Lawrence and into the Eudora center.
All 24 Kingston jobs will be moved into the Eudora building during the next six weeks, Johnson said. Another seven or eight employees should be on the payroll by the end of the year.
"We've had exceptional growth," Johnson said.
