Evergy Officially Opens New Atchison Service Center
New building displays investment and commitment to the Atchison community

Atchison, KS. – September 20, 2023 – Evergy opened its new Atchison Service Center this morning. The center, which will occupy 12 acres at 2103 Main Street, allows the company to efficiently store and secure their materials at one site. Having all the materials, vehicles and employees at one site will improve communication, coordination and outage response times for the community. 

“We are excited to open this modern facility in Atchison and want to thank the City of Atchison for helping make this project a reality,” said Ryan Mulvany, Evergy Vice President, Distribution.  “With one centralized location to keep material and equipment needed for service and outage response, we will be able to provide better customer service to Atchison and surrounding communities. We are also excited about some of the technology that was used in this project to make the facility more sustainable and energy efficient.”

The building is about 15,000 sq. ft. with an associated service yard and vehicle parking for company and employee vehicles. The additional space will allow for improved organization and safer travel and loading and unloading of material. The site also features two acres of fenced storage with room to expand. Technology was also incorporated in the construction of the enclosed storage and maintenance bays - they are heated with water-based efficient heat pumps through floor piping. This keeps the heat in the insulated concrete mass of the floor and lets far less heat escape into the air and open doors. Future plans include adding electric vehicle charging stations and solar power to the building.  

Construction began in Spring 2022 and was completed in August 2023.
