Beef company beefs up office presence at KCI

National Beef Packing Co. LLC has renewed and expanded its lease in the Ambassador Building at KCI at 12200 N.W. Ambassador Drive near Kansas City International Airport.

The Kansas City-based packing company leased 42,000 square feet of office space in the building, up from 27,000 square feet, to allow expansion of a call center for its Kansas City Steak Co. business.

National Beef Packing Co. bought 75 percent of Kansas City Steak Co. in 1997 and bought the remaining 25 percent in 2013. Kansas City Steak Co. supplies portion-cut steaks and ground beef patties to restaurant chains and other food-service customers. It also has a direct-to-consumer mail-order business.
