"Xpanxion" ready for business in Kearney's Tech Park

KEARNEY Neb. (KSNB)- The first addition to tech park in Kearney is now up and running. On Tuesday Xpanxion held their ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the big occasion.

The digital consulting and communications company has numerous locations across the Midwest, offering everything from cloud engineering, consumer analytics, AI and augmented reality and more.

Governor Ricketts was on hand for the big event, saying with STEM degrees being so popular, it's important that rural Nebraska is offering these types of jobs for younger Nebraskans.

"If we want to keep our young people here we have to create the kind of jobs and careers that they're looking for. And Xpanxion and UST Global really represent those types of jobs and career fields that will help us keep our young people." Ricketts said.

The development of this new location has been in the works for roughly 10 years now.
