EUDORA, KS-R.R. Donnelly & Sons’s old plant here will be redeveloped using industrial revenue bonds issued to help a German firm renovate the former site of the Chicago-based printer’s Kansas City area operations. The city council here has passed a resolution to issue industrial revenue bonds in an amount not to exceed $15 million to H.P. Pelzer, a German-based automotive equipment producer that wants to move into the 10-year-old facility. Pelzer had asked for $35 million in industrial bonds, which will allow for the abatement of property taxes. There will also be no sales tax on construction and equipment.

Pelzer is expected to employ about 185 people. The company has three manufacturing plants in the United States, out of a total of 34 worldwide.

The plant is a 115,000-sf facility with nearly 13,000 sf of office space. The property was marketed by David Hinchman and Ken Wasserman of CB Richard Ellis.

Eudora, which is located halfway between Johnson County, KS and Lawrence, KS is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the state. Its population has grown from 4,000 people to nearly 5,000 in the last 10 years.
