KANSAS CITY (KWWL) -  Two companies plan to bring a total of more than 200 new jobs to a distribution and warehouse park in southern Johnson County.
   Flexsteel Industries of Dubuque plans to add 141 jobs at a new building in the Logistics Park Kansas City center near Edgerton.
   And Kubota Tractor Corp. of Torrance, California plans to open a nearly 450,000-square-foot parts distribution center and employ about 75 workers by the end of its first year in operation.
   The Kansas City Star reports the expansions were announced Friday.
   The 1,500-acre Logistics Park is anchored by the BNSF Railway's intermodal freight facility. Flexsteel and Kubota are the fourth and fifth major distribution businesses to open in the complex.
