They make environmentally friendly products, and now a German company will call Kansas' most environmentally friendly town home.
HIB-Systems AG has signed a letter of intent with the city of Greensburg to build its first U.S. manufacturing plant in the city's new business park.
Officials with HIB says the 10,000 square foot plant will employ 27 people when it first opens. The plan is expected to open in May of 2012.
The company produces environmentally friendly modular wall systems for residential and commercial purposes. Officials with HIB say their products can be designed to withstand earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes. The first home using the company's system is also being built in Greensburg.
This is the latest step forward for the city, as it continues to rebuild from the May, 2007 tornado that destroyed nearly all of the town.
