By | November 13, 2007
Poet Ethanol Products is more than tripling the size of its Wichita, Kan., headquarters to 29,000 square feet. The $4.5 million expansion will allow space for 140 employees, according to Poet LLC Chief Financial Officer Bob Whiteman. Fifty employees currently work at the facility. The office building will have an open design with no cubicles or administrative offices. An indoor waterfall will provide white noise. "It will be a unique office building," Whiteman said. "We have put a lot of care and attention into making it a place where our employees will want to work. We have put a lot of attention into details to create that kind of environment for them."
