“Waterjet technology was invented in Baxter Springs, and we are delighted to continue to build on this heritage through the support of the state of Kansas and the local community,” KMT President and CEO Steve Harris said. “We believe that there are continued growth opportunities in a wide variety of end markets for our ultrahigh pressure technologies. A trained and capable workforce combined with the business friendly environment afforded by local and state partners are critical components of our continued success.”
