On Monday, the Olathe Planning Commission is scheduled to consider a Garmin master plan calling for a new 712,842-square-foot manufacturing and distribution center and other changes on its 90-acre-plus headquarters campus northwest of 151st Street and Ridgeview Road.
According to a staff report, the expansion plan is designed to accommodate an “anticipated 2,700 new employees (who) would provide a significant boost to the local economy with a highly desirable tech-sector company.”

Ted Gartner, Garmin’s corporate communications director, said the “compelling plan…will help Garmin expand in a planned, controlled way.”
