The new evidence results from a recent asset survey, unveiled to 850 animal health industry leaders attending tonight's 9th Annual KC Animal Health Corridor Homecoming.

"This latest survey is a powerful endorsement of nearly a decade of cooperation, teamwork and strategic focus that has driven the activities of the KC Animal Health Corridor effort since 2006," said Scott Bormann, Corridor Advisory Board chair and vice president of U.S. operations for Merck Animal Health.

Organic industry growth resulting from mergers/acquisitions and corporate expansions within the Corridor have contributed to the KC region's growing industry concentration. In addition, strategic outreach by the Kansas City Area Development Council to recruit new animal health companies to the region continues to be successful.

"We are so proud of the regional partnership that exists among the economic development, civic, corporate, academic and governmental leadership in the KC Animal Health Corridor," said Kimberly Young, vice president of bioscience development at the Kansas City Area Development Council. "We are widely recognized as the strongest and most admired team in the global animal health industry."

Since the KC Animal Health Corridor launched in 2006, 31 animal health companies have located in the KC Animal Health Corridor. These companies have pledged to create 1,368 new jobs resulting in $78.6 million in new payroll. They have made a total $872.5 million capital investment, occupying 1,054,138 million sq. ft. of new space.

A stable base of animal health companies with a U.S. headquarters in the KC Animal Health Corridor has provided a strong foundation for new industry growth. Companies with a U.S. headquarters located within the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor now represent 29 percent of the worldwide sales of animal health products and diagnostics.

The 2014 KC Animal Health Corridor Asset Survey was conducted and analyzed by Axxiom Consulting.
