Caterpillar dealer Foley Equipment Co. is moving to its expanded Wichita, Kansas, headquarters, according to the Wichita Business Journal.

The company is relocating its departments and personnel to the new headquarters, which includes 160,000 square feet across two buildings, the Journal reports. The new buildings are beside the current headquarters.

The company was formed in 1940 as Foley Tractor Company by Paul J. Foley, who had worked in the treasury department of Caterpillar Tractor Company.

The company has continued to expand through the years and is now in its third generation of Foley family ownership. It serves 104 of 105 counties in Kansas and 40 counties in western Missouri, according to its website.
