KS: ELM Services Expands in Overland Park, Adds 160 Jobs
7 Jun, 2013
The Kansas Department of Commerce and the Overland Park Chamber Economic Development Council announced the expansion of ELM Services LLC in Overland Park. A service provider to the mortgage industry, ELM Services LLC will add more than 160 employees to its current workforce during the next five years.
“We welcome ELM Services to Overland Park as our national and local economy continues moving forward and demand for property increases,” said Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach. “Overland Park set a record of over $115 million in construction value in April, the highest in our nearly 53 years. I believe the nation’s economy is moving in that direction, and ELM Services LLC will be a part of the expanding demand.”
ELM Services LLC recently moved from space on College Boulevard to Corporate Woods, where the company has made nearly $850,000 in capital investment.
“As president and CEO of ELM Services LLC, I am excited we have made the decision to keep our business operations in Overland Park,” said Erika Larson. “Overland Park is the perfect centralized location to expand and grow our business. Even though our physical location is in Kansas, our market is nationwide. Having ELM Services LLC in the central part of the country allows us to reach clients on both coasts and all the states between.”
“I’m excited that ELM Services has decided that Kansas is the place it will continue to grow,” Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George said. “It’s a great sign that we’re building a strong business environment when Kansas companies are able to create many new jobs right here in the state.”
