PARSONS, KS.--- The U.S. Army completes the land transfer of the Kansas Army Ammunition Plant to Day & Zimmermann in Parsons. This comes after 8 years of negotiations. "D" and "Z" acquired more than 4,000 acres of land through the agreement.

The company also agreed to take on the environmental cleanup responsibility. The agreement will allow the company to continue operations and keep 130 people employed. Representatives say the deal will also allow the D and Z to refocus and increase the workforce.
