A Wichita, Kan.-based company has acquired construction equipment manufacturer Terramite Corp.
Coneqtec Corp. President Gary Cochran says that Terramite's products will continue to be manufactured in Cross Lanes under a new company, Terraquip Construction Products Inc.
Cochran said Terramite's workers have been interviewed for positions with the new company at the Cross Lanes plant.
He said the company may not be able to rehire all the workers. But Cochran said Coneqtec hopes to increase sales so that it can expand employment at the plant.
