Under Secretary Klotz packs last crate at Kansas City Plant
Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - 4:32pm
DOE Under Secretary for Nuclear Security and NNSA Administrator Frank Klotz visited Kansas City today just in time to pack the last crate at the Bannister Federal Complex, marking the final day of an 18-month move to the National Security Campus eight miles south of the old facility. His crate was one of 30,000 packed since January 2013. In all, more than 3,000 truckloads transported thousands of pieces of equipment, some weighing as little as six ounces to a milling machine weighing 87,000 pounds. Later in the day, General Klotz thanked everyone who was involved in this massive effort at an all-hands meeting at the new facility. He congratulated them on completing 99.9 percent of their deliverables on time and on budget while completing one of the largest industrial moves in the country.
