An asset survey unveiled to animal health industry leaders during recent Kansas City (KC) Animal Health Corridor “homecoming” activities reportedly showed that companies located in the corridor represent 56 percent of all worldwide animal health, diagnostics and pet food sales. According to Corridor Advisory Board Chair Scott Bormann, “This latest survey is a powerful endorsement of nearly a decade of cooperation, teamwork and strategic focus that has driven the activities of the KC Animal Health Corridor effort since 2006.” Since that launch, 31 new animal health companies have apparently moved into the corridor, pledging to create more than 1,300 new jobs with $78.6 million in new payroll and making a total $872.5-million capital investment with facilities that occupy in excess of 1 million square feet of new space. More than 300 animal health companies are now headquartered along the corridor which reaches from the west in Manhattan, Kansas, to the east in Columbia, Missouri.
