WICHITA — Capital Express Inc., an Omaha-based courier and logistics company, is now operating in Wichita.
“We have a large customer who asked us to come into this market,” says president Jack Johnson.
Johnson says he can’t say who the customer is.
The 25-year-old company has offices in a dozen greater Midwest cities, including a recently opened Dodge City office.
Johnson says in addition to delivery services, Capital Express helps customers put together systems among various departments in order to streamline processes for deliveries.
“We help them figure out what they need.”
The company’s new Wichita warehouse is in 8,000 square feet at 2544 S. Leonine.
Ted Branson of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Jeff Englertof Grubb & Ellis/Martens Commercial Group handled the deal.
Johnson thinks the company has all the square footage it needs in Wichita.
“We don’t generally require a huge amount of space,” he says. “It’s not like anything sits in the warehouse overnight.”
Previously, Capital Express handled the Wichita market from its Kansas City office.
Johnson expects the company’s business to continue to grow here beyond the initial large customer that requested it come.
“Absolutely,” he says. “We have a tremendous customer following and support, and we have added several customers to the Wichita office.”
