PBI-Gordon's Don Chew, CEO, left, and Andrew Peck, CFO, pose in spring 2018 outside the new PBI-Gordon headquarters. Employees officially moved in in early December 2018.

PBI-Gordon Corp. has officially moved into its new corporate headquarters, located at Shawnee Crossings office building, 22701 West 68th Terrace in Shawnee, Kansas. PBI-Gordon manufactures consumer and professional turf and landscape products, and animal health, nutrition and grooming products.

PBI-Gordon announced its purchase of the building in March 2018. Since then, the building has undergone renovations to accommodate approximately 100 of the company’s employee owners. PBI-Gordon currently employs more than 400 nationally in facilities in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Florida.

PBI-Gordon has been headquartered in the Kansas City metro area since its founding in 1947. The company recently moved from its former headquarters at 1217 W. 12th Street in Kansas City, Missouri’s West Bottoms, where it had been since 1981.

According to Don Chew, president and CEO of PBI-Gordon Corp., “PBI-Gordon has had steady growth through the years attributed to launching new products and increasing market share across all customer segments. Our new headquarters at Shawnee Crossing will give us room to accommodate this growth, provide a modern and interactive environment for our employee-owners, and continue to be part of the fabric of the greater Kansas City community.”

"We couldn’t be happier to have PBI-Gordon in Shawnee Crossings,” said Shawnee Mayor Michelle Distler. “They’re not just bringing 100 jobs to our city, they’re also bringing a rich history of 70 years of success. That kind of stability will be great for Shawnee and for the state.”
