U.S. Tool Group to move, expand

WICHITA — Not every business in the aviation industry is struggling.

U.S. Tool Group is expanding.

"Business has been good," says operations manager Michael Obermeyer.

The national company, which is based in Missouri, sells industrial supplies for the aerospace industry and reconditions dull cutting tools. It's been in Wichita for 11 years.

Currently, the company is in about 6,500 square feet at 4509 W. Harry.Nov. 1, it will move to 4727 S. Emporia.

Obermeyer thinks the 10,000 square feet there will be enough room for the next five to 10 years.

"I'm hoping so, because moving is not fun."
