WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A plumbing and heating systems manufacturer plans to move its headquarters and 113 jobs from Wichita to Denver.

The company, Viega, has been in Wichita for 10 years. Viega’s general counsel, Jess Arbuckle, says all 113 employees have been offered jobs in Denver. The move is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1XAt5ht ) the company is keeping its manufacturing plant in McPherson, where it has about 200 employees.

Arbuckle declined to say exactly why the company was moving. He said a nationwide feasibility study found Denver was the best fit for the company because the corporate staff will be more accessible to customers, vendors and regional staff.
