HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A Nevada company that builds prefabricated public restrooms plans to open a plant in Hutchinson.

Public Restroom Company says it will bring 33 jobs to the city when the plant opens in 2019, eventually increasing that to 75 jobs over five years.

The company, based in Minden, Nevada, manufactures the concrete, steel and stone restrooms in several components, then ships them by truck nationwide to be assembled.

The Hutchinson plant will primarily serve the Midwest and eastern sections of the country.

The Hutchinson News reports the family-owned business plans to buy the former Mega Manufacturing building.

Gov. Jeff Colyer said in a news release the company plans to invest $2.5 million in the project. The company is working with the state, Hutchinson and Reno County to receive economic incentives.
