US Farathane evaluated sites in five states before selecting a 220,000-square-foot spec building in the Horizons Business Park in Riverside. The primary product that the company will make at the facility is an injection molding that improves function and reduces weight and complexity. US Farathane will ship primarily to the Kansas City region, but also will use Kansas City as a central hub for certain product lines. The Riverside facility will primarily supply the GM Fairfax plant in Kansas City, Kansas.

US Farthane worked with the Kansas City Area Development Council to help find its new location.
