WINFEILD, Kan. (AP) -- Newell Rubbermaid's decision to expand its plant in Winfield was a cause of celebration in southern Kansas town.

State, local and federal officials were in Winfield Thursday for a groundbreaking of Rubbermaid's new, 500,000-square-foot distribution center.

Rubbermaid announced in December that it would build the new distribution center, as well as closing its Greenville, Texas, plant and moving those jobs to Winfield.

The Winfield Daily Courier (http://bit.ly/oQpVLx ) reports the distribution facility is scheduled to be completed by the end of October. About 30 new jobs are expected to be created when the center opens.

Rubbermaid is increasing capacity to add production of outdoor refuse and home organization products. About 170 jobs are expected to support the increased production.
